A loan of $300 helped to increase her stock of drinks.


Marie Joseph's story

Marie Joseph is a 39 year old woman, married and mother to 5 children whose ages range from 10 to 21 years old. Two of her children still go to school. As a business, she has owned a takeout business in a neighborhood of the town for about 3 years. She benefits from good experience in this domain, but her capital doesn't allow her to satisfy all her clientèle anymore and her clientèle is sometimes obliged to go to her competition. This is because of her small capital. With this loan she would like to increase her cases of drinks in order to satisfy the demands of her clientèle. This will equally increase her turnover as well as her profits and will also allow her to be in order in her business. The income generated will allow her to better meet her family's needs. Her ambitions for her business are to sell drinks wholesale.
