A loan of $1,075 helped to buy incense, calabashes, and shea butter.


Marème's story

Mrs. Marème owns a refrigerator that she's been using for her business for the past ten years. She sells cold water and iced juice. Only four months ago, she replaced her grandmother (who's getting old and cannot sell anymore) who used to sell various products such as incense, shea butter, calabashes, etc, in her small shop at the central market.

It is in fact to strengthen this shop that Mrs. Marème is seeking this loan. She opens her shop from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and her daily turnover reaches at least XOF 1'500.

She also wants to buy a freezer and increase her juice production capacity. She also dreams to have her own house.
