A loan of $150 helped to purchase supplies (including rice, flour, butter, chocolate, and powdered milk), for resale in her shop.

Josiane Carole's story

Josiane is a 39-year-old married woman, and mother of six children between the ages of seven and twenty years old. She has her small shop in a corner of the city. There, she has been selling basic necessities for the past seven years. Thanks to her energetic personality and her expertise in this field, Josiane has amassed an ever-growing clientele whose demands she can no longer satisfy.

To overcome this problem, she is seeking a loan from ACEP Cameroun so that she can increase the stock of goods she has on hand. She plans to purchase rice, flour, butter, chocolate, and powdered milk among other things. With this increase in her supplies, Josiane will be able to increase her sales as well as her income. This loan will enable her to expand her business into a larger shop, as well as to meet the educational needs of her children.
