A loan of $575 helped to buy bunches of plantains.


Rachelle's story

Rachelle is a 34-year-old woman, unmarried, and the mother of two children, 10 to 12 years old, who are both in school. She has been a merchant at a market in the capital for sixteen years. Due to her experience, the good quality of her products, and practical prices, she has earned unmatched fame.

More and more in demand, she is confronted with an imbalance between supply and demand. This loan will enable her to respond to the growing demand. The profits generated will enable her to reinvest in her business (buying bunches of plantains in bulk) to continue to support her children in covering their schooling costs and to meet the needs of her family.
