Bantale's Final Update January 28, 2013

Bantale Anabo has successfully repaid her small business loan. She invested the $175 into her retail business by purchasing additional dairy products, coffee, and produce from local farmers to resell at her local market.

Thanks to the loan she received, Bantale was able to use the profits from her business to provide her family with healthcare, purchase food for them, and do home repairs.

In the future, Bantale aspires to earn enough to continue sending her children to school, expand her current business, and buy supplies in bulk.

Bantale's four children continue to study in school. Because she was able to invest in her business, she will be able to invest in her family.
