Aline's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase more African clothes for sale.

Aline's story

Aline is a 32-year-old and is married with 3 children. Aline is located in the north of the country and she sells African clothes in the community. She is organized and always happy. Aline has been managing this business for about 2 years. Lack of enough capital prevents Aline from reaching the target of improving her business, and that why she has requested a loan to purchase more African clothes to sell in the community. With any profits, Aline will be able to continue educating her children without any problem, to get their basic needs, to save for her future, as well to expand her business.
