A loan of $575 helped to stock up on beverages for her bar..


Mariette Laure's story

Mariette, age 33, is married with children. She runs a bar that she opened a year ago in a district of the capital. The location is good and the business is working out well, but she can't afford to stock up on a wide selection of beverages, which is causing some of her patrons to go to competitors.

She is seeking this loan to buy a larger number of cases and greater variety of beverages. This will help her to meet customer demand, and to bolster her sales and profits.

She plans to reinvest her profits in the expansion of her activity with hopes of opening a restaurant.
