A loan of $650 helped to buy drinks for her restaurant.

Marie Claire's story

Marie Claire is 36 years old, single, and a mother of four children, of whom one still goes to school.

Marie Claire is a merchant and has had a small restaurant in the capital for one year already. Buying goods for her restaurant at retail does not work well and does not allow her to satisfy her customers, who continue to grow in number each day. To solve this problem, Marie Claire requested this loan.

This loan will allow her to increase her stock of foodstuffs (sacs of groundnuts and rice, cases of fish, meat, vegetables, and other small necessities to cook her meals).

Earnings will be partly reinvested in the business to help it expand. The rest will allow her to take care of her family.
