Doucette Nathalie
Doucette is 27 years old, married, and the mother of two children, aged two and three years. She is a vendor and opened a small shop in a district of the capital a year ago. Because of this work she is able to assist her husband with taking care of their family. Her neighborly relations and her warmth have helped her customer base to grow with time. Her only problem is that she does not have enough funds to increase the stock of merchandise for her shop to avoid running out of certain items. This is why she needs a loan which will allow her to buy basic products (sacks of rice, salt, cases of soap, sugar, etc.). She will reinvest a part of her profits to grow her business, and the rest will allow her to meet her daily needs.
