A loan of $225 helped to purchase a supply of cosmetics and nutritional supplements.


James Steve's story

James is 28 years old and is married with one child. He has been selling cosmetics and nutritional supplements in a corner of the square for the past year and five months. Unfortunately, James finds himself constantly out of stock because he must first sell all of his merchandise in order be able to restock. This is due to his lack of capital. James wants to use this loan in order to increase the amount of merchandise he keeps in stock. He plans to save his income not only to expand his business, but also to provide for his family.
