A loan of $600 helped to purchase a stock of clothing and start a trading business in her community.


Natela's story

Natela, age 47, is from the village of Dighomi, where she lives with her 18-year-old son. Natela’s son is a cook in a restaurant and Natela works as a dishwasher. Both of the family members get a monthly salary and they don’t have their own business. Natela works throughout each day to generate income, but her earnings are too small to save and improve the family's standard of living. The family lives below the poverty line and receives a small amount of social assistance from the local government.

Natela would like to start up a clothing sales business in her community in order to earn an additional income. She has applied for this loan in order to purchase a supply of clothing at wholesale prices to start her new business. Since there are not many clothing stores in her village, Natela is confident that her endeavor will meet a high demand. She intends to develop positive relationships with her customers and expects to attain a good profit from her new business. This start-up loan offers Natela a good chance to earn a more stable income and improve her family's living conditions in the future.
