A loan of $600 helped to buy a mechanical press.


Marie Justine's story

Marie Justine is a 38-year-old woman who cultivates palm oil and pond-raises fish.

Specifically, she cultivates palm trees. And after harvesting the nuts, she makes them into palm oil [that she can] sell. She extracts the oil manually, which not only takes a lot of time but also does not allow her to make a large quantity.

With this loan, she would like to buy a mechanical press. This will allow her to easily extract the oil which will increase her production capacity.

The earnings will allow her to better ensure the education of her children.
