A loan helped to buy a tent and table for her flea market at the local marketplace.

Haitelenisia's story

This is Haitelenisia. She is 65 years old and widowed with two sons. Haitelenisia lives under the roof of her eldest son.

She runs a business of a flea market in the town. Haitelenisia sells clothes and shoes, as well as some other useful goods and perfume. She runs her business almost every day, but her main selling day is Saturday, for that is when people visit town for shopping. She has been running this business for five years now.

Haitelenisia pays her own expenses even though her sons have good careers. She is hoping to use her loan money to buy a tent and table for her flea market, because her stock is getting bigger and will not fit in the current table and tent.
