A loan of $1,125 helped to buy used clothing, cosmetics and shoes.


Ablavi Hodalo's story

Married to a salesman, Ablavi Hodalo is 32 years old and the mother of one child. In 2005 she began selling second-hand clothing, cosmetic products, and shoes. She gets her supplies in Lomé and resells them in her boutique. Given her living conditions, Madame Ablavi wants to help her husband, increase her business activity, own her own sales shop, and ensure the future of her children. This is why she is requesting her first loan to buy bundles of used clothing, a case of cosmetics, and two cases of shoes.
