A loan of $400 helped to purchase a bale of clothing.

Samuel's story

Samuel is a 53 years old man who is married and the father of three children, from 1 to 10 years old. He has been a merchant at a local market for twenty years where he sells secondhand clothing for youngsters, men, and women (depending on the season and on the bale of clothing). Due to low capital, he is compelled to go to the unpacking each weekend to buying clothing retail, so he can offer some at his stall. This does not really bring in much, thus the importance of loans for his business, since loans enable him to purchase mixed bales. He will save the profits this loan will bring, so as to open a clothing store.
