A loan of $400 helped to purchase packages of shoes.


Julienne's story

Julienne is a 58-year-old widow. Her business is a shop in the town market where she has been selling plastic-packaged slippers and shoes for nearly five years. For the moment, she gets her supplies at retail prices in the local market and with this loan she would like to purchase packages of slippers not only to increase her stock but also to increase her profit margin.

Julienne's ambition is to save enough to ensure the education of her grandchildren. The profits will also allow her to better meet the domestic expenses that have become somewhat difficult since the death of her husband.
