A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a freezer.


Benita's story

Benita is 60 years old, a widow with one son who is already independent. She makes a living by selling chicken in her butcher shop that is in one of the markets in the southern zone.

This loan is her sixth sequence in this institution. Benita is a long-standing client of the institution. Benita is going to use this loan to buy a large freezer to preserve her products in a good state. Her reason for applying for this loan is that she requires the freezer to sell the meat. Benita faces the challenge of competition in her business since there are various butcher shops in the zone, but she has many customers because of the kindness with which she treats her clientele. She is going to utilize the benefits to buy another large freezer. Her wish for her business is to have a stable and profitable business and thus increase her income.
