Roseline Charline's story

Roseline Charline is a young single woman. She has one child, aged 15, who goes to school. For eight years, she has been running a second-hand clothing store in her local neighborhood. This loan will enable her to buy more items: jeans, T-shirts, polo shirts etc, in order to have more stock to be able to sell her customers. She will use the profits to meet the needs of her family and put back into her business.
