Amélé's story

Ms. Amélé N. is fifty-something, married, and has four children to support. This is an energetic woman whose work involves making and selling rice on roadsides in her town. The quality and hygienics of her meals have earned her some fame and has attracted many customers. To have her customers eat under the right conditions and in a nice environment, she’s requesting financing to fix up a decent and conducive spot for accommodating her customers and for acquiring enough supplies of rice and other goods. She can thus increase her revenues, which allow her to provide for her family.
