A loan of $500 helped to purchase groceries.

Alain Roger's story

Alain Roger is a young man from Cameroon. Aged 30, he is engaged and a father of four children from four to ten years old. In addition to his children, he supports his younger sister, who also still attends school.
His business is a store in which he retails groceries and sanitary beverages. He has 30 months of experience in this business. With this loan, he would like to increase his stock of beverages as well as of groceries and be able to sell wholesale to retailers, which generates slightly higher profit.
In the long run, his ambition is to purchase some land on which to build in order to guarantee stability for his family.
