A loan of $600 helps to buy more clothes to continue selling.


Concepción Cruz's story

Concepción completed her studies through the third grade of school. She is married and her partner works as a security guard. Only one of their children lives with them, along with their daughter-in-law.

Concepción has made a living by selling clothes for 10 years. She learned this occupation out of the necessity to generate income. She goes out to sell all around the community from 9:00 in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon.

The use of this loan is to buy more clothes to continue selling.

Her goals are to have a strong business, improve the conditions of her home, and to meet the basic needs of her family.
