A loan of $400 helped to buy crates of tomatoes and strings of onions.

Nicole Anette's story

Nicole is a 36-year old woman. She has children and is engaged to be married. For 15 years, she has been working as a vendor at the capital city’s market, where she sells produce (tomatoes, peppers, onions…) in season. This work allows her to help her partner to cover some everyday expenses. Her business is going well, but does not bring in a lot because she buys her wares at retail prices before reselling. Thanks to this loan, Nicole will be able to buy wholesale (crates of tomatoes, strings of onion etc). This will lead to an increase of her sales and thus her profit margin. She will save part of her revenues in order to help her fiancé with the education expenses for their children, and the rest will be reinvested in her business in order to grow it further.
