A loan helped to buy fabric.


Franckel's story

Franckel is 57 years old and married; he has four children. In order to feed his family, he buys fabrics and makes up clothes which he takes to the town centre every weekend to sell. He has been running this business for the past 20 years, and, as a result, he has managed to earn enough to raise his children and take care of all the family. He is requesting a micro-loan so he can diversify his stock of fabrics. In the future he would like to be able to expand his customer base.
