A loan of $300 helped to increase her stock of food products and buy peanuts and rice.

Marie's story

Marie, age 46, is married and the mother of four children, whose ages range from 15 to 23. She opened a restaurant that she's been running for years.

This business enables her to provide for her family. Her profits are limited by the fact that she buys the products she needs retail.

This loan is thus important to her business, since it will enable her to increase her stock of food products (sacks of peanuts, one sack of rice, and other items she needs to cook her dishes).

It will render daily trips unnecessary and lower her taxi expenses, as well as increase her profits. She will reinvest one part of her profits to expand her restaurant. The other part will help her provide for her family.
