A loan of $1,100 helped to renovate her rental houses.


Irene's story

Irene is now 50 years old, and has been doing well since her second loan which helped her to renovate her rental houses. She has put up a retail shop and hopes this business will grow to enable her to open up a wholesale shop, and eventually a supermarket in the future.
