A loan of $500 helped to bolster her stock of cases of beverages.


Paulette's story

Paulette is a 29-year-old merchant with children. She runs a bar that she opened 5 years ago near her home in a district of the capital. Her warmth and experience have helped her to build a solid customer base whose needs she can no longer meet due to a lack of funds.

She is seeking a loan to increase her stock of beverages. This will help her not only to meet customer demand, but also to bolster her sales and profits.

She will reinvest part of these profits in her activity, and use the remainder to provide for her family’s daily needs.
