Maria Simona
María Simona, 33, started selling clothes when she finished her studies because of lack of employment opportunities. Despite not being able to finish her university education she was able to survive because she also provides service with her three-wheeled vehicle and is able to visit her customers to show her products.

She has been in this line of work for over 5 years but is hasn’t been easy to support herself because if it isn’t a child becoming ill it’s household expenses.

She wants the funds to buy clothes in order to repay her loan in a timely fashion.

In the future she’d like to have her own clothing store.
