A loan of $600 helped to purchase merchandise that he will resell in his shop.

Thiery Albert's story

Thiery Albert is a young Cameroonian of 35 years old. He is engaged to be married, and is the father of four children. He runs his business selling food in a district of the city. As he has been running his business for only nine months, he has not built up the traffic he hopes to eventually generate.

Thiery Albert wants to use this loan to buy cartons of soap in cakes and sachets, cartons of sardines, bottled drinks, and refined oil. This will increase his stock of merchandise, which will in turn increase his sales and income. He plans to reinvest the income he earns into his business so that it will continue to grow.
