Jeannette is a 49-year-old woman, married and the mother of four children, ages 11 to 25. Three of her children attend school.

Jeannette is a retailer; for the past 22 years, she has been selling fresh produce in one of the neighborhoods of the capital city. Thanks to her expertise, social skills, and to the high quality of her products and reasonable prices, she has managed to attract a large group of customers, whose needs she can no longer satisfy.

She is requesting a loan to boost her stocks of merchandise (particularly tomato crates). This, in turn, will help her to meet the needs of her large customer base and to increase her sales.

She will use her profits to reinvest in her business and provide for her family.
