Elisabeth's story

Elisabeth is a 47-year-old woman, a widow, and a mother. She has been a merchant in a local market for 20 years, where she sells fresh food (tomatoes, onions) according to the seasons. Thanks to this business, she can support the needs of her family.

Her long experience in this area and her good acquaintance with food suppliers allow her he to buy at a good price which enables her to improve her business.

She is requesting this loan to increase her stock of these fresh food items, i.e., crates of tomatoes. The income from this loan will allow her to increase her business. The rest she will save to support her family and their schooling.
