A loan of $700 helped to buy more bales of used clothing.


Faustina's story

Faustina is 29 years old, and she is married and the mother of one child. She also has her sister’s daughter living with her, making two children. The children are currently in school. She is a petty trader who sells used clothes. Her husband and kids are very proud of her because of the enormous contribution she makes in the home.



Selling of used clothing is a very big market in Ghana, as brand new clothes are very expensive for the economically active poor. Therefore selling used clothing has created a market for many women like her. She has been in business since last year and gets her stock of goods from Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana. She wants to use the loan to buy more bales of used clothing to increase her inventory. She believes this loan will help her save for her children’s educational needs and to rent a store to sell out of. She hopes to repay her loan on time.
