A loan of $400 helped to increase her stock of crates of drinks.


Bibien's story

Bibien is a 43-year old woman who is separated and mother to four children. She has been managing a bar in one of the capital's districts for the past ten years and she sells healthy drinks and food there. Over time she has acquired experience in this field and this has enabled her to build up a significant customer base. Unfortunately her limited stock does not allow her sufficiently to meet customer demand; this has led to a significant decrease in customer demand and in turn to a decrease in her sales and profits. She is thus requesting this loan so that she can buy more crates of drinks. This will enable her to retain and increase her customer base, and more significantly to increase her sales and profits, which in turn will enable her to expand and refurbish her bar and also provide for her family's needs.
