Haidi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for inventory (clothes, accessories, etc) for her store.

Haidi's story

Haidi has a successful business selling t-shirts, accessories, calling cards and other novelty items out of her own store. She is effusive about her love for her job and the benefits of running her own business. While she had a store prior to joining Grameen America one year ago, she lacked enough capital to fully stock it with inventory and therefore struggled to make the business profitable.

With Haidi’s first two loans, she was able to sell a variety of new products and saw her business begin to thrive. She is now seeking a third loan of $1,500 to purchase additional inventory, such as clothing and accessories, to sell at her shop. Haidi has spent years learning her trade and knows that she can continue steadily growing her business as long as she has access to the necessary loan capital. Haidi is a hardworking, successful microentrepreneur, and a loan of $1,500 is all she needs to work towards making her dreams a reality. Haidi has two young children and looks forward to creating an even more prosperous life for her family.
