A loan of $575 helped to increase her stock of fish.


Marie's story

Marie is a 46-year-old Cameroonian lady. She is single and the mother of three children who are between 21 and 30 years of age, which is to say that all of her children are now adults. Marie has two other people in her care. Marie's business is a restaurant where she sells grilled fish and drinks. She has had this restaurant for 12 years. She has good experience in her field and so has a large number of loyal customers. She manages to get through a box of fish a day. Marie would like to use this loan to buy seven boxes of fish and 20 crates of soda for her business so that she can avoid experiencing a break in her stock. Marie's ambitions for her family are to build a house from permanent materials so that she can guarantee their security.
