A loan of $625 helped to buy a bundle of mixed clothing.


Joseph's story

Joseph is a 45 year old father. He has been selling used clothing for young people, men and women (according to the season and to the bundles he acquires) in a local market for the past nine years. Because he has little capital, he is obliged to go to jumble sales every weekend to buy on a retail basis the clothes which he displays on his stall. This does not really bring him much money, hence the importance of this loan for his business, since it will enable him to buy a mixed bundle. He will save the profit he makes as a result of this loan to open a clothes' shop.
