A loan of $2,450 helped to pay for clothes and shoes to resell to her customers.

Zarine's story

Zarine has been trading in clothing since 2010. She sells clothes, shoes and different household products from her house. The assortment of goods she sells is not that big and needs to be updated and expanded periodically in order for her small business to be productive and compatible.

Zarine currently needs a loan to buy new items (clothes and shoes) to resell to her customers. She has now been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products.

ZArine lives in Qajaran town with her husband and two school-aged children.
