A loan of $525 helped to purchase supplies and equipment for her carpentry shop.

Rosarie's story

Rosaire is a 55-year-old woman, a widow, and mother of four children, of whom the oldest is 33. Aside from her children, she supports two other children. Rosaire has owned a carpentry shop in a district in the capital for a few years already. She is very familiar with the trade and its suppliers, as well as her customers, whom she has acquired over the course of time.

However, she is often faced with problems due to her barely adequate inventory, which prevents her from appropriately meeting the needs of her customers. To alleviate this problem, Rosaire turned toward us to request financing. The profits that will result from this business will then be reinvested, and the rest will enable her to meet her family's needs.
