A loan of $325 helped to purchase fresh food (palm oil, macabo, also known as cocoyam, yams, lemons, and potatoes) for resale.


Jacqueline Nina's story

Jacqueline is a 26 year old single mother of one child. She owns and manages a stand where she has been selling fresh food (palm oil, macabo, also known as cocoyam, yams, lemons, and potatoes) in a district of the city for over ten years. She is requesting this loan to increase her stock of merchandise due to the growing demand of her customers. This increase in sales will allow her to increase her revenue.

Part of the income she earns will be used to reinvest in her business, and the rest will be used to pay for the needs of her family and raise their standard of living.
