A loan of $475 helped to buy hygienic beverages and sacks of rice.


Delphine Martine's story

Delphine is a 27-year-old woman, married, and the mother of three children, from 1 to 4 years old. She has a nephew to support as well. One of these children already goes to school. For work, Delphine has a grocery store where she has been selling food products (breads, chocolate, candies, cakes, etc.) and also hygienic drinks for a year in a local district. Her business is focused on retail sales. Her profits do not allow her to meet the many needs of her family.

With this loan, she would like to increase her stock of beverages and also to buy sacks of rice for responding better to customer needs. Consequently she can increase her profits, given that her store is much coveted.

Her ambition is to open a warehouse in the future, expand her store, and to buy a plot of land eventually.
