A loan of $1,000 helped to bolster her secondhand clothing business.


Ndèye's story

Ms. Ndèye is a married businesswoman and mother of a family who lives near the branch office. She has been working in the commerce of secondhand clothing and has twenty years of experience. Ndèye helps out her husband in meeting family expenses. She starts her day at 9 AM and finishes at 7 PM. She is requesting this loan of 500,000 francs to bolster her business capital by purchasing bales of used clothing, which she resells to her potential customers, so as to earn more income. With the profits, Ndèye is going to increase her working capital and improve her family's living conditions. She would like to be a wholesaler and monopolize the distribution of secondhand clothing in the market.
