A loan of $850 helped to buy more products wholesale (disposable diapers and cocoa) for her resale in the local market.

Lina's story

Lina is 57 years old, a widow and has one adult daughter. Apart from her daughter, she supports one nephew who lives with her.
Lina is a merchant and sells her products in the local market. She mainly sells coconut, and in the nearby city of Inhambane, she buys bulk sold disposable diapers from Swaziland. With this loan for her business, she will buy more of these products to enhance her business stock.
In the future, she wants to see her business grow.
