A loan of $625 helped to buy goods.


Marie Chantal's story

Marie is a Cameroonian woman who is 28 years old, married and mother to three children. She has owned and managed a small shop in one of the town's districts, selling hair extensions and beauty products, for the past eight months, and during this period she has seen her customer base grow and is unable to manage to satisfy customer demand sufficiently. This loan will enable her to increase her stock, by buying hair extensions and beauty products, so that she can increase her sales and profits. The profits she makes will enable her to increase her capital, expand her business and provide for her family's needs (education, food).
