A loan of $600 helped to increase his stock of merchandise.

Alen's story

Alen is a young, 31-year-old man from Cameroon. He is single, and has no children. For the past eight years he has worked selling women’s shoes in a local market.

Alen plans to use his loan to buy traditional women’s slippers to increase his stock, and to meet the needs of his ever-growing, demanding customer base. He will use part of the profits this increase generates to invest in his business, and will use the other part to buy a store in the future.
