A loan of $575 helped to buy clothes to sell.


Pascal's story

Pascal is a thirty-three-year-old married man with five children living in Kasese, Uganda. Twelve years ago he decided to set up a boutique in order to meet his increasing family expenses. Price fluctuation and high rental fees affect his business while his dreams are educating his children up to the university and owning a wholesale shop. Pascal intends to use the loan to buy clothes to sell ahead of the Easter season when demand is very high.
