Alejandra sells women’s clothing in her hometown, the Casabe community of Santo Domingo. The entrepreneur is twenty-seven years old and the mother of four daughters ranging from six to twelve years old, all of whom attend school.
Alejandra has been selling her goods for three years. Recently, she took from FSMA a loan which she invested in the purchase of a collection of fashionable clothing. She managed to repay successfully the loan, and this could increase significantly her income. Now, the entrepreneur is requesting a second loan to buy more goods since her products are in high demand at the moment. Alejandra wants to have money enough to keep supporting her daughters’ educations.
