Esssohanam's story

The mother of two, Essodolom is a married woman 46 years old, and living in Agoè. She is a retailer of charcoal and works a great deal to earn an income. She gets her supplies twice a month at the market and resells at her home.

Essodolom is asking for this loan to order sacks of charcoal enabling her to have better sales and more income. Then she could cope with family expenses and help her husband to care for the children by paying for school fees at the start of this first trimester.
