A loan of $400 helped to buy rice, salt, mineral water, cartons of sugar, candy, etc.


Marie Christine's story

Marie, age 29, is a merchant. She runs a grocery store that he opened in a district of the capital three years ago. The small business is successful thanks to her warmth, her experience, and her loyal clientele, which is steadily growing. However, she is no longer able to meet customer demand due to her limited capital, which forces her to buy her stock at retail. She is seeking this loan to strengthen her working capital by diversifying her merchandise (rice, salt, mineral water, cartons of sugar, candy, etc.). This should help to bolster her profits. She plans to reinvest a portion of these profits in her activity to cover some business expenses, and she will use the remainder to support herself and her family.
