A loan of $325 helped to pay for used pants and sweat suits to sell.


Maminiaina Lovasoa's story

Maminiaina says thank you to the KIVA lenders for their financial support. The loan enabled him to diversify the secondhand clothing at his sales outlet. His business selling used clothing is doing well. The profit earned from it has allowed him to acquire a shop, which he used to lease before. His living conditions in general are improving since business has improved. Now that it is wintertime, pants and sweat suits sell better, thus the idea to renew the loan in order to stock up.
