Evangelina
Mrs. Evangelina sells used clothing. She is 51, married, and has six children. Her husband is an elementary school teacher.

Evangelina started to work for a living over ten years ago, selling pop and charamusca [a frozen juice snack] from her home. After a while, started selling food from a small stand, but she had to stop because the rent was too high and she wasn't making enough money to cover it. So, her husband and children helped her to fit out part of their home and get set up to sell used clothing. This is now how she makes her living. She works alone, and on the weekend she goes out to sell in other villages and to wholesalers.

Evangelina is now requesting a loan for buying several bales of used clothing, since the Christmas season is coming up. With the support of this loan, she will be able to stock her store with new styles so that all of her customers can sport the latest fashions.

Her goal is to have a larger business in the downtown core of the city in order to have a greater influx of customers. This is her first loan with FAMA and she hopes to repay her quotas punctually.

Doña Evangelina se dedica a la venta de ropa usada, tiene 51 años de edad, es casada, tiene seis hijos y su esposo es maestro de educacion primaria.

Evangelina inició a ganarse la vida desde hace mas de diez años vendiendo refrescos y charamuscas en su casa de habitacion. Luego de un tiempo instaló una pequeña caseta donde vendía comida pero tuvo que quitarla porque el alquiler era muy caro y no le quedaban las suficientes ganancias para cubrir el pago. Entonces su esposo y sus hijos le ayudaron a ampliar una parte de su casa y alli instaló una venta de ropa usada y hoy en dia con eso se gana la vida. Trabaja ella sola y los fines de semana sale a vender a las aldeas y mayoreo.

El prestamo que Evangelina esta solicitando lo necesita para la compra de varios fardos de ropa usada, ya que se avecina la epoca navideña. Con el apoyo de este prestamo ella podra surtir su negocio de nuevos estilos para que todos sus clientes luzcan a la moda actual.

Su meta es tener un negocio mas grande y ubicado en el centro de la ciudad para asi tener mas afluencia de clientes. Este es su primer prestamo en FAMA y espera cumplir con el pago de sus cuotas de manera puntual.
