A loan of $425 helped to purchase used clothing for resale.

Asmati's story

Asmati, age 42, is a widow from the village of Vardisubani ("street of roses" in English) where she lives with her two children. She is actively involved in an agricultural business and cultivates a piece of land where eggplants are grown. Asmati sells her produce locally. Besides that, she rents agricultural land to earn income and feed her children.

In order to meet her increasing family expenses, Asmati decided to start her own business. Asmati has noticed a high demand for used clothing in the market as local people can’t afford to buy new clothing due to their poverty. In response to the local market demand, she has requested a loan to purchase stock of used clothing to sell among her community members with a price mark-up. She plans to invest the profit in the same business and develop it in the future. Asmati hopes this loan will change her life.
