A loan of $1,025 helped to buy clothing for children, ladies and men.

Germaine's story

The client is a 46-year old woman, single with 3 children, who are at a standstill in their studies. In order to meet their needs, she has opened a clothing boutique where she sells shirts, pants, tailored outfits, bodysuits and different types of beauty supplies that attract female clients.
Having been a recipient of Hope for almost one year, she has learned how to take advantage of their different loans to reinforce and strengthen her business, which has largely influenced her social and financial life, such that, today, she is no longer in debt and has her own capital for restocking her shop.
Her savings are vast and she reimburses without defaulting on the payments.
With this new loan, she is going to buy clothing for children, teenagers, girls, women and men. In preparation for the end-of-the-year holidays, she has learned to develop loyalty with her clients by offering them little gifts.
Looking to the future, she is in the process of enlarging her shop and taking care of the schooling of her children.
