Rosalie is 54 years old, married, and a mother of four children, who range from nine to 33 years old. She has been selling dry and fresh foods in a local market for nine years.

To solve this problem she is seeking a loan. This financing will help her to buy a large quantity of fresh and dry foods (gumbo, tomatoes, groundnuts, manioc, potatoes, etc).
