A loan of $600 helped to purchase a bale of clothing to sell.

Christine Lorette's story

Christine is a young businesswoman, 27 years old, who opened a small ready-to-wear clothing store, which she has been running in a district in the capital for a year already. Her warm welcomes, her creativity, her good fashion advice, and her experience have earned her a rather large customer base.

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