A loan of $400 helped to buy phone credit.


Dorette's story

Dorette is a 33-year-old single woman and the mother of two children. She has opened a mini-kiosk in one of her city's neighborhoods, and she has been managing it for six years. She sells telephone credits. She is requesting this loan to buy bulk quantities of phone credits (from MTN, Orange, Camtel) in order to increase her stock of credit. This will allow her to make a profit which will not only increase her capital and boost her business, but also allow her to satisfy the needs of her customers. Her goal is to use her profits to take care of her own needs as well as those of her family.
