Marie's story

Mrs. Marie G. is a widow, aged 50, the mother of 4 children with two others, all adults, but she continues to participate in covering family expenses. With this loan, she plans to buy palm oil and lemon juice to retail. She will go to stock up in Guinea Bissau where foodstuffs are less expensive, and then will sell her goods in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The profit she will make will allow her to improve her living conditions.
