A loan of $500 helped to buy a washing machine.


Janvier's story

Janvier is a 26-year-old man, who is married and the father of one child. Ten years ago he opened a laundry, which he has been running since then. His business is going well, but in order to provide a faster delivery service and to better satisfy his customers, he is requesting a loan from us, in the amount of 250,000 CFA francs. He will use this loan to buy a new washing machine. Profits from Janvier's loan will be reinvested in part in his activity, while the rest will allow him to leave his parents' house.
