A loan of $400 helped to increase her stock of cell phones and accessories.

Dominique's story

Dominique is a young woman, who is 27 years old, married and mother to three children who all go to school. She has a small shelter not far from her home, where she has been selling cell phones and accessories for the past year. Her small capital does not allow her to buy sufficient goods and so she obliged to sell all her stock each time before getting more in; this means that she has a permanent lack of stock. She is requesting this loan so that she can increase her capital and thus her stock; this will enable her to renew her stock before she has totally run it down; She will reinvest part of her profits in her shop and save the rest for the beginning of her children's next school year.
