A loan of $475 helped to buy several crates of drinks.

Philomaine's story

Philomaine is a young, 39-year-old single mother of a 5-year-old child, who is already at school. Three years ago she opened and started to run a bar-restaurant in a neighborhood of her town. Her time in this business and her significant experience have allowed her to obtain a loyal customer base. Nevertheless, her small amount of capital does not allow her to manage these customers very well, as there are constant stock shortages because she buys in small quantities.

This loan will allow Philomaine to buy several crates of hygienic drinks, as well as a significant stock of staple foodstuffs. She will save part of her profits to expand her business by buying more drinks, and will use the rest to provide for her family.
