A loan of $1,225 helped to buy pagnes (colorful wax cloth) and clothing.


Amélé's story

A traveling saleswoman of batik pagnes (colorful wax cloth) since 2002, Amélé is a 42 year old woman. She stocks up from the wholesalers who come from bordering countries. She wants to have a fixed business location. It is for this reason that she is asking for a first loan to buy more merchandise. The profit from her sales will allow her to rent a store to avoid walking around to do business.
