A loan of $600 helped to buy a truckload of plantains.

Joseph Brice's story

Brice is a young 23 year old shopkeeper. He has been selling fresh food (maniocs, plantains, palm nuts and fruits) retail according to the seasons in a local market for 2 years. He has good knowledge of suppliers, and especially of his clientèle that he gained with time thanks to his experience in this domain. He would like to buy a truckload of bunches of plantains to have a good stock which will allow him to better satisfy the constant demands of his clientèle and to avoid stock shortages. He will save his profits to not only expand his business but also to meet the needs of his family.
