A loan of $100 helped to buy gas stoves for resale.


Justin's story

Justin is 36 years of age, married, and has two sons, the oldest of whom is in elementary school. Nine years ago he started a general retail business with his older brother. However, he left this business a year ago to set up his own business in the village of Guéguéré.

Justin would like to use this loan to sell energy-efficient stoves and gas stoves, with the goal of fighting against deforestation in his town and improving his income. He therefore plans to buy two gas stoves for resale to the local population. He will use his income to finance his children’s education and to provide for his family, and will also work towards introducing this money-saving equipment to the local population.
