A loan of $500 helped to increase her stock of peanuts and beans.


Régine's story

Régine is a single woman, 51 years old and the mother of an eighteen year old child who attends school. She is a trader in a market of a district of the capital city, where she has been trading fresh food (plantains) and dried food (peanuts and beans) according to season for four years. Her friendly and dynamic approach has earned her a significant customer base over time. Given the imbalance between supply and demand, she is seeking a loan to increase her stock of merchandise (beans and peanuts) to help her meet the needs of her demanding customers. This loan will increase her working capital, her sales and therefore her profit margin. The profits generated by the loan will allow her to continue funding her son's education, and to invest in and diversify her business.
