Edwige's story

Ms. Edwige, aged 36, is married to a shopkeeper. Together they have four children, of whom two are in school. The oldest is 16 years old, and the youngest is 10 months old. Ms. Edwige has been a retailer of grocery items since 1990. This business she runs in a shop enables her to support herself and to help her husband with household expenses.

With this loan she is requesting from our institution, she is going to buy some merchandise to respond well to the wishes of her customers. With the profits, she wants to save money in order to finish rebuilding, become a wholesaler, and establish financial stability in her family.
