A loan of $425 helped to buy communication credit.

Thérèse's story

Fidèle is a young woman from Cameroon, who is 24 years old, single and mother to a five-year old girl who goes to school. She has owned and managed a kiosque in a corner of the town for the past six years, and here she sells communication credit, biscuits and candy. She is dynamic and welcoming, but now she considers that her stock of credit is not sufficient for her expanding customer base. The loan she is requesting will enable her to buy communication credit wholesale from suppliers (Orange and MTN wholesalers). The profits she makes will enable her to increase her capital and maintain a mini-kiosque, as well as to provide for her family's needs and buy a piece of land.
