A loan of $625 helped to purchase three bundles of secondhand clothes.

Elissa's story

Elissa is 45 years old and a single mother with two children, 7 and 12, who attend school. She has been selling secondhand clothes from a shop in the capital's market for the past 7 years. Her business runs well, but she has to go to the wholesale market every Saturday to purchase the inventory for her shop. This is because she has limited working capital. The money from this loan will allow her to purchase a good bundle of clothes for resale in her shop. This will help her increase sales and profits. She will reinvest part of her profits in the business and use the rest of the money to take care of her family.
