A loan of $425 helped to purchase fish.

Sophie's story

Sophie is a woman of 58 years old. She is a widow and the mother of seven children, the oldest of whom is 35 years old and the youngest of whom is 17. Sophie owns and manages a stand in a district of her town where she sells smoked fish. She is requesting this loan to increase her stock of raw materials so that she can meet the demand of her growing clientele. The income Sophie earns with the help of this loan will serve to expand her business and provide for the education of her youngest child, who is still attending school.
