A loan of $400 helped a member to buy a truckload of plantains.


Groupe Nsah.'s story

Josephine is 41 years old, single, and mother of five children, all of whom have received schooling. Her eldest child is 22 years old, and her youngest child is 6 years old.

She has been selling fresh food (plantains) at a market in the capital city for the past ten years. Her business truly exists. She is a strong and courageous woman who supports her children all on her own, and she is seeking a loan to buy a truckload of plantains and bags of tubers wholesale in order to increase her stock so that she can increase her sales revenue and her profit.

She will reinvest some of her profit in her business, and she will use the rest to provide for her children's essential needs.
