Maria Guadalupe
Guadalupe is married and has 4 dependent children. She is 34 years old and comes from a town that has beautiful scenary and is rich in history. She has been selling second-hand clothes for women and girls for a year. She sells the clothes out of her house and on Thursdays goes to the local flea market to sell. She says that friends and neighbours sell her their clothes which she then sells to her customers. She also makes and sells hand-embroidered napkins. She says that when she was very little her mother taught her how to sew these beautiful napkins. She sells them to make a little more money as sometimes the money her husband gives for the household expenses and the children isn't enough. This is why she decided to help him by selling clothes and the embroidered napkins she makes. Doña Lupita, as people fondly call her, is asking for a loan to buy material to make the napkins such as marquise, thread, needles, yarns of different colours and the used clothing she buys for resale. Doña Guadalupe is very grateful to the microfinance institution for the loan they are going to give her as it will allow her business to grow little by little and she will be able to give her children a better quality of life.
