A loan of $475 helped to buy used seasonal clothes for resale.


Hervo's story

Hervis, a 31-year-old Egyptian Albanian who is applying for a loan for the first time, lives in a major city in southern Albania and sells used items, such as clothing and shoes, as well as cheap kitchen wares, to local people, for a living. He does not sell at the Egyptian/Roma market where some of his community members sell, because he wants to avoid the booth taxes and other charges; thus, for the moment, he sells in the streets. Hervis is married and has a seven-year-old child, and he has been the sole financial provider since they started their family. They plan on expanding their family soon, so he says he will have to expand his sales as well. The loan that Hervis is applying for will be used to buy items for resale.
