A loan of $425 helped to buy phone credit.


Jeanne Emilienne's story

Jeanne is a 55-year-old widow and the mother of five children. She runs her own kiosk where she sells food supplies and products as well as phone credit. She works in her city and has been involved in this activity for the past ten years.

She is requesting this loan to boost her stock of phone credit (from Orange and MTN). This purchase will allow her to meet the needs of an increasing number of customers and to make more profits.

Part of Jeanne's profits will be reinvested in her working capital while the remaining money will be used to improve her living conditions (nutrition and healthcare).
