Melingui's story

Melingui is a widowed mother who is raising her 2 adult children, aged 25 and 28, alone. In order to meet her needs and those of her family, she opened a bar in a local district 3 years ago. Because of the difficult living conditions, Melingui is also a civil servant in one of the capital's organisations. She is however requesting a loan which will enable her to increase her inventory of merchandise, namely juices and beers, and avoid potential stock shortages. The profits generated will be used to buy a new freezer.
