A loan of $400 helped to expand her stock of cell phone recharge cards.

Emmanuelle Murielle's story

Murielle is a 22-year old woman who has been working as a vendor in one of the capital city’s districts for one year. She has opened a stand where she sells phone recharge cards and other small items. She supports herself thanks to this work. This line of business brings profit when you have sufficient recharge cards. However, without sufficient capital she does not manage to earn a sizeable profit. She keeps running out of stock since she needs to [sell] everything in order to replenish her stock. As a result, her customers are disappointed and turn to competitors. This is why she is seeking a credit that will allow her to increase the volume of her phone recharge cards. She will save part of her revenues in order to pay for her studies, and the rest will be reinvested in her business to grow it further.
