A loan of $525 helped to buy merchandise.


Jeanne Marie Francine's story

Jeanne is a 34-year-old single mother of three. She is a merchant, selling hair extensions and beauty products in a corner of the town square for a year. She constantly finds herself out of stock, because she needs to get rid of all the stock to be able to get more because of the small size of her capital. She would like to buy weaves and extensions (150 pieces) to have a good stock which will allow her to better satisfy the constant demand of her clientele and to avoid stock shortages. She will save her profits not only to grow her business but also to meet the needs of her family.
