A loan of $1,050 helped to buy bales of second-hand clothing, specifically unused women's undergarments.


Jeanne's story

This client is 54 years old, widowed, and has five children between the ages of 17 and 36 in her care. She began selling second-hand clothing in 1998 with 30,000 Frs. capital. She has already gone through three loan cycles with Hope; she is an exemplary leader, has repaid her loans without defaulting, and has built up considerable savings. With this new loan, she is going to buy bales of second-hand clothing, specifically unused undergarments such as bras and women's slips. Her strategy is to choose the best products and to offer quality service to her customers. Her ambitions are to open an undergarments store and to take care of her children and ensure a good future for them.
