A loan of $525 helped to increase her stock of essentially products.


Marie Madeleine's story

Madeleine is a 54-year-old woman who is a married mother of four children, from 4 to 34 years old. She is a merchant and has opened a small grocery store, which she has been running for ten years. Thanks to her warm welcomes and good neighborliness, she has won over a loyal customer base, which is growing over the course of time. Unfortunately, she can no longer totally satisfy her customers, thus the necessity for this business loan at this time. The loan will enable her to increase her stock of essential products. And this will increase her sales and therefore her profit margin. The profits will in part be reinvested in her business to expand it, and the rest will allow her to provide for her family.
