A loan of $850 helped to purchase blankets, chairs, a table and bowls for re-selling.


Ludovina's story

Ludovina is single and has a son. She has been a trader for over 10 years. She's 59 years old and works 8 hours a day from home as a trader.
The money from the loan will be used to purchase blankets, chairs, a table, bowls and some foodstuffs such as eggs for re-selling.
She states that in the future she intends to build a store near her home. Ludovina's greatest challenge is keeping her business afloat and repaying the loan without delays so that she can request more loans.
