A loan helped to buy a bundle of second hand shoes.


Brigitte Niaina's story

Brigitte is 44 years old and married. She has three children, two of whom are already independent. Her youngest child is in school and lives with his parents. Brigitte's husband works as a machinist in a manufacturing company.

Brigitte sells second hand shoes. She started this business when her first child was born 18 years ago. She has asked for a loan to increase and diversify the shoes she has to sell. Because of a steady market, Brigitte plans to create another sales location next year.
