Emaran Desire's story

Emaran, age 49, is married and the father of three children. He's been selling dried food (plantains, rice, beans, maize, peanuts) in one of the city's neighborhoods for the past eight years.

He's seeking this loan to bolster his stock of products, by buying 20 sacks of dried food products, in order to meet customer demand, strengthen his business and increase his sales and profits.

His profits will enable him to reinvest in his business and improve the standard of living of his family.
