A loan of $725 helped to buy shoes at wholesale price.


Rita's story

Rita is 31 years old and has four children. She makes a living selling shoes from catalogs. She is a sales representative, and sells by walking to public and private institutions, visiting different neighborhoods to offer her products. This is the first loan she will take out through the communal bank. Rita will use the loan to buy shoes that are currently on sale to have in stock for her business. During this season there is increased demand and she already has a lot of orders to fulfill. Her reason for requesting a loan is to be able to have a variety of products to satisfy her customers. The challenge Rita faces in her business is being able to provide service to her customers in an efficient way. She will use the increased profit she receives as a result from her loan to better the quality of life for her family, as this is the only source of income she has to support herself and her family.
