A loan of $425 helped to buy a bale of pullovers and some display mannequins..


Jean Martial's story

Jean Martial is a single man of 21 with no children, though he is raising his younger sister. For one year, he has been a merchant in a market in the capital where he has opened a little clothing boutique. His business is going well, but because his working capital is so meager,.he has been obliged every weekend to go to where shipments are unpacked, hunting for something to sell. That is why he has requested this loan to permit him to buy a bale of pullovers and some mannequins to display them on. This will not only increase his sales but also his profit, which will be partly reinvested to grow his business and partly used to help him cover his needs and the needs of his little sister.
