A loan of $525 helped to purchase merchandise such as rice, refreshments, milk and other foodstuffs for re-selling.


Joisse's story

Joisse is 42 years old and a widow. She has two children, one of whom is in the first year of college and the other one is still in 7th grade. The money from the loan will be used to purchase merchandise such as rice, refreshments, milk and other foodstuffs for re-selling. Joisse hopes to be able to keep her business afloat. Her main challenge is taking care of her children, that is to say, saving money to pay for college fees all the way to graduation.
