A loan of $400 helped to buy a bundle of mixed clothing.


Fils Zacharie's story

Fils Zacharie is a 34-year-old man who is married and a father. He has been a retailer at a local market for several years and sells second-hand clothing for children, men and women (depending on the seasons and the bundles' contents). He is forced to go to the unpacking each weekend to buy clothing - which he later displays on his counter - at retail prices, due to his limited capital. This does not allow him to earn much, hence the importance of this loan to his business as it will enable him to buy a mixed bundle of clothing. He plans to build his savings using the profits he makes thanks to this loan, so that he can expand his clothing shop and take care of his family's needs.
