A loan of $300 helped to buy a truckload of wood and 50 bags of coal.

Anne's story

Anne is a 47-year-old engaged mother of eight, whose children range from 10 to 28 years old. Five of her children are still in school. She is a shopkeeper and has been selling firewood for 20 years. Her mastery of her business and her experience make her highly efficient. Over the years, she has gained a loyal customer base. Though her business functions, she doesn't have enough capital to buy large quantities of merchandise and make a large profit because she and her fiancé take care of their everyday issues through this business. Thanks to this loan, she will be able to buy a truckload of wood and 50 bags of coal, which will considerably increase her profit. She will save a portion of this income for her children's education and will invest the rest in her business.
