A loan of $1,075 helped to buy coconuts.


Tency's story

Tency started this business several years ago because her ex-mother-in-law showed her how to prepare her product, coconut, and because they needed a way to support the family, so they decided to set up a business. She runs it with her children’s help.

She prepares the grated coconut, cooks it with spices, and goes out to sell coconut candy with her children. Her greatest difficulties is not having capital and delivering the product on time. Tency has been separated for several years and all her children are fully grown. She will use the money from this loan to buy coconuts to make candy for sale. One of her goals, with God’s blessing, is to move ahead with her family and for her business to continue growing.
