A loan of $725 helped to buy second-hand clothes to sell.

Norman's story

Norman is a businessman living in Masindi, Uganda. He is in the clothing business mainly selling used clothing which most people in his area wear. He says he hopes to improve on the business's current status from being at a market stall to a modern boutique.

Norman adds that prices are constantly changing whenever he buys the products he sells, something he says is a big challenge for him as he finds it difficult to pass on the price increase burden to his customers. Norman wants a loan to buy second-hand clothes to sell at his market stall.
