A loan of $500 helped to buy planks of wood and upholstery to make furniture.


Moise's story

Moise is a 24-year-old married man, who has three children aged between 8 months and 5 years. One of his children goes to school. He is a carpenter, and has a workshop in the capital which he has run for the past 12 years. His know-how and experience have allowed him to build up a large, loyal customer base over time. However, Moise’s low capital does not allow him to manufacture several pieces of furniture to put on display in his workshop window to attract customers (and to sell this furniture). This is why he has requested this loan to buy wood, planks and upholstery to make furniture. Part of the profits he will receive will help him to provide for his family and save for his children’s education. He plans to reinvest the rest in expanding his business.
