A loan of $425 helped to buy 10 crates of drinks and some trays of eggs.


Madeleine's story

Madeleine works in commerce. She opened a grocery store in a neighborhood in the region's capital city and has been running it for one year now. Her small business is working out thanks to the warm welcome she gives everyone, her experience in the field and the customers she has gained over time. Her number of customers has increased and she can no longer satisfy them because she doesn't have a lot of capital which forces her to buy her goods retail. She is requesting this loan to strengthen her small amount of working capital, to diversify her merchandise (10 crates of drinks and some trays of eggs), and to increase her profit margin. She will re-invest part of her profits into the business so that she can meet the needs of the people in her area and the rest will allow her to meet her own daily needs as well as those of her family.
