A loan of $400 helped to buy fresh produce.

Christine Elise's story

Christine Elise is 41 years old, married, and the mother of five children who all attend school. She has been selling fresh produce in one of her city's neighborhoods for one year only. She exports fruits to Europe, and in return, she receives handbags, shoes and perfumes which she sells locally.

She would like to use her loan to buy fruits, plantains, "cassava sticks", and large quantities of pineapples, in order to increase her sales capacity. She also wants to buy a freezer, in order to be able to preserve some of her produce.
