Hilda Marisela is 25 years old. She is single, and travels every day to her accessories business, located in the market in her town. She tells us that she is asking for this new loan because she needs to enlarge her business and buy more products. People are asking her for new styles, colors and sizes (earrings, rings, chains, bags, cosmetics, hair clips, hair bands, bracelets, and hair pieces). She also wants to start selling other types of clips and earrings that she doesn't have yet. She tells us that the place where she sells is a very good spot because it is accessible. She also tells us that with her work she wants to support her brother who is still in school, because her mother is a single mother and can't pay all of her siblings' expenses. She wants to go to school too but she needs for her brother to finish his studies and then he will help her. Meanwhile, she says that she needs to work really hard and support her family. She hopes not to let down the company that is giving her this help.
