A loan of $525 helped to purchase bundles of used clothing (trousers and bags) for re-selling.


Henriqueta's story

Henriqueta lives in Boane. She's single and has two children, both of whom attend high school away from home.
Her means of livelihood is her business. She trades used clothing, which she buys 30 kilometers away from her home and then re-sells at the local market. Besides, she raises laying hens in her house and sells eggs.
Henriqueta will use the loan to purchase bundles of used clothing (trousers and bags) for re-selling.
She would like to finish her house and enlarge her coop in order to increase the number of laying hens.
Her biggest difficulty is getting enough space for carrying out her business activities.
