A loan of $400 helped to buy three boxes of fish and some crates of tomatoes.


Adeline Noël's story

Adeline Noël is a 30 year old married woman, a mother of 4 children whose ages vary between 2 and 12 years of age. She is a trader in a market in the capital city, and for three years now she has had a grocery store where she sells tomatoes, spices and fish. She wants to increase her working capital to better purchase her stock, by buying crates of tomatoes to retail in smaller quantities to her customers, and also three boxes of mackerel - as this is the most popular fish in the region. This will allow her to increase her sales and to make a larger profit. She will invest part of this in the business, buying more fish as she hopes to open a fishmongers shop in the near future. The balance of the money will help her to fund her children's schooling.
