A loan of $500 helped to buy mobile phone credit.

Nicole Ndimah's story

Nicole is a 38 year old woman. She is single and has two children (6 and 3 years old). She has owned and managed a mobile call center in part of the city for the past three years, where she sells phone credit, candy, cookies, chips etc. Dynamic and welcoming, she noticed that her stock of phone credit isn't sufficient for her growing client base. The loan that she is taking will allow her to buy phone credit in bulk direct from suppliers (Orange and MTN). The profits she will make will in part allow increase her working capital and get a small kiosk, and also allow her to meet her family's needs (food and education).
