A loan of $175 helped to purchase secondhand jackets to resell.


Volahanitra Sylvie's story

Volahanitra says thank you for the loan you accorded her the last time. It let her increase the secondhand clothing at her sales outlet. Daily sales have experienced a slight increase. The revenues from her business have enabled her to cover the main household expenses.

Volahanitra would like to develop her business further. Now that winter is here, jackets sell well, thus the request for a second loan to stock up.
