A loan of $300 helped to purchase merchandise to sell.


Marie Jeanne's story

Marie Jeanne is a 36-year-old woman who is married and the mother of two children, of whom one is in school. She is a merchant in her district in the capital where she has been operating her business for five years. Her kindness to those around her has meant a growth in her customer base over the course of time.

Her low capital fund no longer allows her to meet the demands of her customers. She is requesting a loan enabling her to increase her stock of merchandise to stabilize the supply and demand situation. The profits generated will help her to expand her business and to improve her living conditions.
