Jacqueline's story

Jacqueline is a 34-year-old married woman and the mother of five children, three of which still are still in school. She owns a restaurant in one of the capital city’s neighborhoods, and been managing it for three years already. Most often, she purchases food for her restaurant at retail, but gets her meat, fish, rice, and oil wholesale.
She is requesting a loan to increase her stock of these wholesale foods, which will allow her not only to satisfy her already-growing clientele, but also to make a higher profit, which will help her take care of some of her family’s daily needs, and in time to expand her restaurant.
