A loan of $450 helped to buy clay, bags of cement, shovels, wheelbarrows, paint and glazes.


Serge's story

This client is 37 years old, married and the father of 3 children aged between 2 and 9. Without support for continuing his studies, he began making pottery and decorative items. Given the high demand for these products, a loan will allow him to increase his stock by purchasing: clay, 3 boxes of different colored paints, 3 multi-shape molds, colorants, 1 shovel, 1 trowel and 1 wheelbarrow. He has been saving hard to guarantee expansion of his micro-business. His ambition is to have a modern pottery studio where he could help unemployed youngsters, and find a balance between supply and demand.
