Marie Rosalie's story

Marie Rosalie is a 51-year-old woman, married, and the mother of five children between the ages of 23 and 32 years old. Among them, three are still attending school. Marie Rosalie has been a merchant at the local market for one year, and is active in the retail sale of seasonal fruits (papayas, pineapple, lemons, bananas, avocados, etc.). She has a good relationship with her suppliers, and especially with the customers she has acquired over time through her experience this field.

Nonetheless, she often finds herself out of stock due to very high customer demand. Marie Rosalie would also like to sell communication credits due to customer demand. She has therefore sought this loan, which will allow her to expand her business and increase her income. She plans to use her income to reinvest in her business and to meet the needs of her family.
