She sells used clothes. She has been doing this for over five years. She leaves everyday from sunup to sundown looking for new customers and promoting her clothes. She does this in spite of difficulties she has encountered, like her arthritis and not being able to walk long distances. This was the sacrifice she had to make for her three children.

She is asking for this loan for working capital to buy shirts, pants, skirts, and children’s clothes, which are the items her customers ask for the most.
