A loan of $850 helped to reorganize her shop to run both her businesses : retail and food serving.


Diombo's story

Mrs. Diombo is a widow and the mother of three children. She's been a reseller for two years. At first, she used to sell watermelons during a specific time of the year. Afterwards, she outfitted her small shop to resell food products. Additionally, she also runs a very small food serving business. She works from 6 in the morning to 11 in the evening. The loan she's seeking will enable her to reorganize her store to run both her businesses : retail and food serving. Diombo works in order to be able to feed her children, whom she has in her care, and improve her family's dietary conditions. She wishes to one day buy her own house for her children.
