A loan of $500 helped to buy more merchandise such as leather sandals, different styles of rubber sandals, and underwear.


Petrona Lylliam's story

Petrona, a mother of 3, sells rubber slippers and clothing. The [previous] loan allowed her to expand into other areas of sales which she had been unable to access because she did not have enough products to offer. She now has more customers and is grateful for the opportunity provided. She would like to buy more merchandise such as leather sandals, different styles of rubber sandals, and underwear. The summer season is coming and these are the products that she sells the most. They are also the most affordable type of shoes for her customers, the majority of whom are people of modest means.
