A loan of $400 helped to buy coloured bristles, wood, and adhesive.


Anonymous's story

The client lives in her own home with her husband and one-year-old child. She has made and sold brushes for washing clothing for three years. With her income and her husband's help, she and her husband are able to cover their household costs. The client is requesting a loan for the purchase of the necessary materials for making her brushes, such as coloured bristles, wood, and adhesive. She has many customers because this is a very sellable product. With this investment, she will be able to have a better income and provide her family with greater economic stability.
