A loan of $200 helped to buy crates of tomatoes and green condiments.

Isabele Chantal's story

Chantal is a young 37 year old woman, fiancéed, and mother of children. She has been a shopkeeper in a market of the capital for 15 years where she sells fresh foods (tomatoes, peppers, and spices...) according to the seasons. This business allows her to help her spouse to resolve certain little daily needs.

Her business functions normally, but does not bring in very much because she buys her merchandise retail to resell it. Thanks to this loan, Chantal will be able to buy her merchandise wholesale (crates of tomatoes, green condiments). This will increase her sales and thus her profit margin. She will save part of these profits to help her fiancé with their children's schooling and the rest will be reinvested in her business to expand it.
