A loan of $450 helped to purchase merchandise (soft drinks, rice, cornflour and other household staples).

Henrique's story

Henrique is married and has seven children, three of whom attend different levels of school. The other children are underage or live in common law marriages. He lives in a house that he owns. Aside from his family he also supports a nephew and a stepson who live with him.
He has been in retail (he sells soft drinks, rice, cornflour and other household staples) for over ten years.
With the current loan for 13,000mt he intends to purchase more merchandise so he can meet the demand by stocking up.
His dream is to open a hairdressing salon and acquire a photocopying machine. His main challenge is the lack of funds for his business.
