A loan of $400 helped to increase the stock of spices (white pepper, black pepper, hot pepper in bags, chicken spices, fish spices, pork spices, …).


Iliassou's story

Iliassou is a 42-year-old single father of eight. He runs a corner boutique where he has been selling spices and other miscellaneous items for 15 years. Thanks to his energy and competence, he has gained a growing clientele, which he can no longer satisfy. This is due to the small size of his capital. He is seeking a loan which will allow him to increase his stock in spices (white pepper, black pepper, hot pepper in bags, chicken spices, fish spices, pork spices, …). The profits that come from this loan will be partially reinvested into his business to grow it, and the rest will help him to meet the needs of his family.
