A loan of $500 helped buy chairs and pots to resell from her home.

Paulina's story

Paulina is 36 years old, single and the mother of 1 daughter. Her income comes from her business. She works every day selling white goods from her home and also by mail order. She travels every month, usually two or more times to buy products from South Africa.

With this loan she plans to buy chairs and pots to resell from her home.

Her biggest dream is to build a shop so that she can run her business from a fixed location with good conditions.

Her challenge is to pay back her loan within the pre-agreed term so that she can ask for another one as well as paying for her daughter's school fees.
