A loan of $675 helped to buy necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, and nail polish.

Prudence Cynthia's story

This woman is a married mother of one child aged 2, and has one person in her care. For seven years, she has been getting supplies of costume jewelry in Kinshasa, which she re-sells at the market at a display stand. She has mastered her knowledge of the various qualities and current models in order to satisfy her customers' requests. She makes between 50,000 F and 70,000 F worth of sales each day.

With this loan, she is going to buy ceremonial finery, sets of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, nail polish, decorative combs, and barrettes.

Being on her second loan cycle, she repaid her previous loan without difficulty and made considerable savings in order to achieve her objective, which was to sell a large quantity of items so as to expand her business and open a shop.
