A loan of $1,025 helped to buy children's and women's shoes.


Ida Parfaite's story

This forty-two year old client, single with two children in her care, launched into shoe sales in 2000 to provide for the needs of her children. Having proven a good capacity for savings and successive repayments with no defaults, these loans have powerfully transformed her life. She has enlarged her business, she has purchased wholesale merchandise, and with her profits she continues to strengthen her business. Very pragmatic, she is keen to look to the future, and her ambition is to go abroad herself to stock up. She takes care of her children and attends validly to their schooling.
