Famille Zahinda Group's story

For twenty years already, Josephine has been selling used household linen in order to care for her family. Before that, she was a farmer and it was her neighbors who got her started in selling used clothing. This business is the family's primary source of revenue and thanks to the financial support of Paidek, she hopes to make her business more sustainable and profitable.
