A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a freezer, peanuts and other ingredients in bulk.


Bernadette's story

Cassava was one of the best-selling products in the community. However, it was very challenging for cassava vendors to go to a different location in order to buy mamba (peanut butter) which is a complement to cassava. Bernadette quickly discovered the importance of peanut butter for these vendors' businesses and decided to start making and selling peanut butter locally. Bernadette passion is to better its customers’ lives by providing the highest quality of products at the lowest prices. Because of a previous loan from Zafen, the business has bought a peanut grinding machine to increase its production. As production increased, the demand for goods and services increased. Which explains its need to increase production and create more jobs. A loan will help the business better satisfy its clientele.
