A loan of $375 helped to buy additional crates of drinks and a bale of used clothes.


Clémentine Chantal's story

Clémentine is a 36-year-old single woman, and the mother of a 16-year-old child who is already in junior high school.

Seven years ago she opened and started to manage a shop where she sells drinks and clothes. Although her business is doing well, her stock is often limited because she can only buy small quantities of goods due to her small capital. She constantly has to sell her entire stock before she can purchase more goods.

This is the reason why she needs this loan, which will allow her to buy more crates of drinks and a bale of used clothing.

Profits from this loan will help Clémentine to improve her storefront, and also to expand her business. She plans to save the rest to pay for her daughter's school tuition.
