A loan of $100 helped to buy maize, pistachios and smoked fish for resale.


Seraphine's story

Seraphine, age 56, has been selling dried foods at a local market for the past six years. She has a solid experience in this activity, which has allowed her to build a substantial customer base.

She wants to use her loan to buy maize, pistachios and smoked fish wholesale to bolster her income. Until now, she has been buying her stock at retail.

The revenue earned will help her to better provide for her family.
