Jacqueline's story

Jacqueline is 47 years old, married, and the mother of five children between the ages of 26 and 18. She has been involved in the preparation of meals for the past 25 years, selling fritters locally, in her town.

Jacqueline is a dynamic and courageous woman who financially supports her children. She is requesting this loan to buy food supplies (flour, beans, maize and breakfast foods), in order to increase the level of her stock, which is not very high. This loan will also help her to increase her turnover and profits.

Jacqueline will reinvest her profits in her activity and use the rest of the money to meet her family's needs (children's education, nutritional and healthcare needs).
