Eliana's story

Eliana is 53 years old and has a great sense of humor. Her desire to overcome enabled her to improve the living conditions for her family, which consists of her elderly mother and her 30 year old son who helps with the work around the house.

Selling clothes was one of the jobs she enjoyed as a young woman. Eliana always liked to dress well and over time her mother encouraged her to sell clothes. For six years, she has been distributing orders that her customers place at the end of each month. She manages her business from home, with her friends and neighbors being her main customers.

Eliana believes her business can be profitable by taking advantage of sales at various retail stores that acquire quality garments with the intention of selling them at higher prices. In the future, she plans to improve the service to her customers, open a small stand in her home, and offer a variety of high-quality articles of clothing.

This is Eliana’s first loan with Microfinanzas PRISMA. She is committed to being responsible and making her payments. With the money she is requesting, she plans to increase her inventory of clothing by taking advantage of seasonal clearance sales.
