Valerie will use the loan to buy larges bales of used clothing from her supplier. In Congo, used clothing is sold to local vendors in large bales and then separated out to be sold individually. Her business strategy is to offer friendly customer service to her clients.

She has received 5 previous loans from HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She wants her business to continue to succeed and make a large enough profit to enable her to travel abroad. She hopes her children will continue to work and be successful adults.
