Roxana's story

Roxana C. R., age 29, lives in Ciudad Arce in the department of La Libertad together with her l5 year old daughter, her cousin, an aunt, and her grandfather. For six years, Roxana has had a shop selling men’s shirts and pants. Each day, Roxana gets ready to sell as much as possible, all for the benefit of her little girl. Because she is a single mother she has to work very hard to be able to offer a stable life to her daughter. At the same time, she has to contribute to the household expenses. This is why she is applying for a loan which will allows her to purchase a greater quantity and variety of clothes, especially for this Christmas season in which people want a greater variety of items for purchase. Roxana wants to be able to increase her sales and her ability to offer a better life to her daughter.
