Dorothée's story

Dorothée is a 44-year old lady, who is divorced and mother to three children, whose ages range between 12 and 18 years old. She has been selling cereals in one of the town's markets for the past 15 years and thus enjoys good experience in this field. With this loan she would like to buy sacks of groundnut and pistachios in order to boost her stock of goods and consequently her sales capacity. The income she generates will allow her to provide better for her family's needs, which have become too heavy since her divorce.
