A loan of $1,025 helped buy bales of second-hand clothing.

Viviane's story

The client is 44 years old, single with a child. She began selling second-hand clothing some 20 years ago when she first gave birth. Unmarried, she had to support herself and meet her child's needs.

She has already been granted several loans from Hope, which made a considerable impact on her social life. Her sales increased from 30,000 to 90.000 francs, she reimbursed without a problem and made considerable savings.

With the intent of becoming a great businesswoman she continues to save, because in the future she wants to open a used clothing depot.
