A loan of $225 helped to purchase a sack of beans and a box of fish.


Sara's story

Sara is a 38 year old married woman, the mother of a family. She is a trader and sells bread with beans and other sauces - she has been doing this in the mornings for one year, in an area of the capital city. Her knowledge in this field as well as her prices have helped her to get and keep a growing customer base, which is increasing day by day. This has led her to seek this loan, as her capital is no longer sufficient to fully meet demand. With the help of the loan, she will increase her stock by purchasing one bag of beans and one box of fish. The profits generated from this loan will be partly invested in the business, and she will save the rest for her children's school fees.
