Florence's story

Florence is 45 years old, married and the mother of four children who are 28, 25, 18 and 15 years old. She has one additional dependent who lives with her because he is still in school. In 1991, Florence went into business selling foodstuffs. She began her business to help her husband support their family. Now she works seven days a week, 12 hours a day, and earns about Le 950,000 every month. She is requesting a loan for Le 5,000,000 to buy food items to sell to her customers, including bulgur, garri and cornflower. She has successfully repaid one loan and hopes that this new loan will allow her to increase her profits by Le 300,000 a month. In the future, Florence plans to complete the construction of her house, buy a commercial vehicle and embark on an international business. She thanks you for your support.
