A loan helped a member to buy a variety of clothing and refinance debt.


Tekoporave Rekavo Group's story

This committee is called Tekoporave Rekavo. They joined each other and work together to help their families and achieve a better quality of life.

Maria is one of them who should be mentioned. She sells clothing, and says that while her work is modest, it enables her to help her family and cover her needs.

She remarks that due to the mandatory quarantine caused by COVID-19 her sales are down, but in spite of this, she is looking for ways to keep improving and boosting her business.

She is an enterprising person who strives to overcome daily hardships and offer her loved ones a decent life, free from the deprivations she has been through.

She is requesting this loan to buy a variety of clothing to be able to invest a bit more capital in her business and also to refinance her debt.
