A loan of $150 helped to buy three dozen pieces of clothing and four dozen items of underwear.


Irène Abra's story

Irène is a dynamic 41-year-old woman, who is married and has two children. She works reselling women’s clothing and underwear on the streets of the Adidogomé neighborhood. She has been working in this business since 2008, and has not had to face any major obstacles.

Irène gets her supplies twice a week in the main market. She only stocks up twice a week due to her low working capital, as otherwise it would be too expensive. She has requested this loan to buy three dozen pieces of clothing and four dozen items of underwear, so that she can increase her stock and her turnover.
