A loan of $525 helped to purchase a bale of clothing to sell.


Martin Berlin's story

Martin is a young man, 35 years old, married, and the father of two children. He is a merchant and has opened a small ready-to-wear clothing store, which he has been running in a district in the capital for two years already. His warm welcomes, his creativity, his good fashion advice, and his experience have earned him a rather large customer base.

The growth in his customer base poses a problem, since he no longer manages to satisfy all his customers due to low capital funds, which compels him to go to the outlets each weekend to buy retail and then come back to make his sales. This doesn't bring in enough profit, therefore this loan is important for Martin, enabling him to purchase a bale of clothing for his store. This will allow him not only to satisfy his customers but also to make more profit. He would like to reinvest his profits in his business in order to expand it.
