Jeanne Marie
Jeanne, a 44-year-old married woman, has been a shopkeeper in the capital city's market for ten years. She sells food products (onions, eggplants, tomatoes) depending on the season.

She knows her suppliers and, above all, her customers very well thanks to her long experience in this area.

This business allows her to help her husband take care of their daily needs.

She is asking for this credit to increase her stock of merchandise by buying onions and eggplants. This will increase her sales and thus her profit margin. The income from this loan will be partly reinvested to expand the business. The rest will allow her to meet her family's daily needs.
