Concepcion Manuela's story
Ms. Concepcion Manuela is 63 years old and lives at home with her husband and her two eldest daughters. Her husband is a builder who specializes in constructing gutters (eavestroughs) at construction sites. Manuela’s business is based around buying and re-selling clothing for men, women and children. She also sells small appliances, household goods and other items according to requests she receives from her customers. The loan will help Manuela acquire a larger quantity of goods for this summer season, for the holidays, and for year-end, a season which is usually very high in orders and retail sales. Manuela longs to build up her business through hard work so that she can retire and spend time in the company of her grandchildren, ensuring herself a prosperous and dignified future.
