Why we chose Francine
We choose the African Congo because they are the poorest country. When we saw her story we thought it would be good because she was close to her goal and because most people in Africa don’t have beds and mattresses so her company would do well. She also had a good story and a good chance of getting our loan back.
Since she has been single, Francine has been selling mattresses. She was taught this by her mother, with whom she used to sell. What gives her pleasure nowadays is to see that this activity alone provides for the whole family. She is nevertheless confronted with the problem of not being able to access the place where she gets her supplies.
