A loan of $100 helped to purchase vegetables for re-sale at the market.

Dado Pithiel's story

Mrs Dado Pithiel is a 58 year-old widow with children. She has sold vegetables for a living for seven years. She works between 9am and 2pm. This is the first loan she has requested and so she sought out IMCEC in order to improve her vegetable offer. She sees to her family's needs, as her husband is deceased. With the profits she generates from the business she looks after herself and her family and invests back into the business. She dreams of one day opening a general food store in order to diversify her business activities.
