A loan of $500 helped to purchase empty juice bottles, sacks of sugar, labels and fruits.

Aubierge Sylvie Alice's story

At 44 years old, the entrepreneur Aubierge Sylvie Alice is married and the mother of two children whose ages range from 10 to 17 years. Having considered her family's expenses in 2007, she opened a small production unit making natural juices.

When her loan was granted, she purchased empty bottles, pots, labels, caps, 50kg of sugar and fruits such as mangoes, granadillas, oranges, etc.

She has a production capacity of 1,000 liters of fresh juice each week, and has a strong customer base.

With this new loan, she wants to purchase a juice extractor, a machine to pasteurize the bottles, and to increase her stock of bottles.

She plans to open a large juice production unit one day, and continues to save and put her profits toward the realization of her plans.
