In order to get ahead in business, Blanca sells clothing of all types: she sells bedspreads, trainers, quilts, awning and anything else that she can sell. Blanca sells door-to-door and also out of her home, where her customers come when they need something. She works three days a week, and prefers to work in the morning. She sells on credit, collecting payments every Sunday. Blanca has been doing this work for over ten years and it is helping her to prosper.

Blanca will use this loan to buy more merchandise such as clothes, bed-sheets, awnings and other items to sell. She has been with the communal bank for three loan cycles and likes it as the loans help her to finance her business and improve it every day.

Blanca's dream is to continue to move ahead. with her business.
