Clementine's story

Clémentine is a forty-year old shopkeeper; she is married and the mother of nine children who all attend school. She supports three other persons, for a total of twelve dependents. She has been selling bananas and plantains at one of the city markets for four years. She gets her supplies from markets in neighboring villages and in the city suburbs.
With this new loan, she would like to buy large quantities of merchandise and sell it wholesale to retailers, which will generate slightly higher revenues. This will allow her to help her husband cover the household expenses.
