A loan of $1,025 helped to buy clothing in bulk for resale.


Aime Gilbert's story

This borrower is a 42-year-old married man and father of three children ranging from 5 to 14 years old. He started to sell second-hand clothing nearly 16 years ago. He has been a member of Hope for almost three full loan cycles and always repaid his credits without problems while making considerable savings. His sales increased from 40,000F to 90,000F per day and he earned substantial profits. With this new loan, he will buy bales of pants, shirts, polos, unused t-shirts, and discontinued suits, which he will sell at retail neatly pressed. His goal is to open a men’s wear shop and travel abroad to purchase high-quality merchandise to meet his customers’ needs. He is a very ambitious man who takes care of his family and provides for his children’s education.
