A loan of $400 helped to buy four bicycles and spare parts.


Dieudonné's story

Dieudonné is a young 26-year-old man, who is engaged to be married and father to a 1-year-old child. He also has a further two other people under his care. He works as a mechanic, and also sells bicycles and spare parts in a neighborhood in the capital, which he has done for the past two years. Dieudonné’s small business works well, but he lacks the capital he needs to increase his stock of merchandise. This is why he needs this loan, which will allow him to buy four bicycles and spare parts. This will increase his sales and, consequently, his profits, which he will save to reinvest in expanding his business.
