A loan of $300 helped to buy piglets and chicks.


Marie Paule's story

Marie is a 32-year-old woman who raises chickens and pigs to resell. She has been doing this for one year already and it is going well. However, she does not have much capital, so she is obligated each time to wait for the stock she buys to be raised and sold before she can buy new piglets and chicks. This causes interruptions in her stock which causes her customers dissatisfaction quite often. She is asking for this loan to buy a large quantity [of piglets and chicks], which will allow her not only to satisfy her already growing customer base, but also to earn more profits. The profits from this loan will help her to increase her business (by increasing the number of her chicks and piglets) and also to support the everyday needs of her family.
