A loan of $425 helped to increase her stock of fish.


Marie Jeanne's story

Marie Jeanne is a 43-year-old woman who is unmarried and the mother of a family. She is a merchant and has been selling fresh water fish at a market in the capital for thirteen years. Thanks to this business, she is taking care of her family. Because she purchases fish in small quantities, she does not really earn much, thus the importance of this business loan, since it will enable her to increase her stock of fish. And it will prevent extra trips each day and reduce her taxi costs. And so her profits will increase. She will reinvest part of her profits in her business, and the rest will help her to meet family needs.
