A loan of $1,025 helped to buy undergarments and clothing for children and adults.


Christelle Nadine's story

Christelle Nadine is a 37-year-old shopkeeper, unmarried with two children who all go to school. She began selling undergarments and clothing for children and adults in 2005, when she divorced her husband.

She has already benefitted from several loans that allowed her to expand her business. She buys undergarments such as men's and women's underpants, and clothing for children and adults wholesale, which she sells at a good retail price in the market.

She has accumulated enormous savings and with her profits, she continues to strengthen her business, pays for her children's schooling and ensures the future and balance of her family. With time, she wants to open a large clothing store.
