A loan of $575 helped to buy fish, tables, and chairs.

Rose Nadine's story

Rose Nadine is a young Cameroonian, 31 years old, unmarried, and the mother of two children, 6 and 14 years old, who are both in school. She has been selling roasted fish at a site in the city for eight years now. In addition to her children, she has two other persons to support, and she meets their needs as bests she can, thanks to the revenues that her small business generates, her good experience, good humor, always-warming welcome, and the quality of her service, all of which has today allowed her to have a significant customer base, which makes demands she can no longer satisfy because of her meager capital.

She would therefore like to use this loan to buy fish (she sells 30 kg per day), tables, and chairs to improve her accommodations and to make her customers happy. The extra revenues generated will enable her to do better in meeting her children's educational and nutritional needs. Her ambition is to open another sales outlet.
