A loan of $975 helped to buy bundles of secondhand clothing.


Arnauline Reack Mildrede's story

This client is a 30-year-old vendor. She is married and has a four-year-old child. She started selling secondhand clothing about six years ago, when she stopped her schooling during secondary school. She began selling secondhand clothing in order to help her husband.

She has specialized in the sale of dresses for girls. She has built up a loyal customer base and has very effective sales strategies. She buys bundles of new dresses, washes them, then goes out to sell them to customers around the neighborhood and sometimes at public administration buildings.

With this loan, she will buy more bundles of dresses, especially since Christmas is right around the corner.

After having received a previous loan, her sales sharply increased, and she saves a lot and makes a large profit. Her goal is to one day have a secondhand clothing store.
