A loan of $850 helped to purchase garments such as shirts, suits, bags and shoes for re-selling.


Sandra's story

Sandra is 28 years old and married. She lives with her two children in a house that she owns. One of her children is 7 years old and the other one is below school age. Sandra has been a merchant for over five years and also attends the first year of the Higher Institute of Technology and Management. The money from the loan will be used to purchase garments such as shirts, suits, bags and shoes for re-selling. Sandra doesn't have a store, so she delivers the products directly to her customers and collects payments at the end of the month. She hopes to make her business grow. The main challenge she faces is acquiring a vehicle to transport her merchandise as a way of retaining her customers.
