A loan helped to buy basic food items such as rice, sugar, liquid soap and sweets for resale.


Bamby's story

Bamby is a young, married woman. She is 25 years old and has two children. She lives in the neighbourhood where the field partner is based, and sells basic food items such as sugar, oil, liquid soap and sweets.

Bamby is not responsible for any particular expenses apart from her personal costs. She starts work at seven in the morning and finishes at ten in the evening.

Bamby has requested this loan to increase her stock holding and diversify the range of products which she offers. She would like to have a general food store and, therefore, improve the living conditions of her family.
