Madeleine's story

Madeleine is a 52-year-old woman, married, and the mother of seven children. Her oldest child is 34 years old and the youngest is 15. She has been working in the restaurant business for five years, and she serves meals locally, in her town. Courageous and determined, she financially supports her children. She is requesting a loan to buy some basic food supplies (bags of rice, bags of beans, 10 egg trays, breakfast goods). This will allow her to boost her stock of goods, which is quite low, and to increase her turnover and profits. Madeleine will reinvest her profits into her business and will use the rest of the money to meet her basic needs as well as those of her children.
