Inocencia's story

Inocencia is a 40-year-old married lady who is the mother of 4 children. One of them is of age and three are students in high school. She lives in her own home.

With the requested amount, she wants to buy capulanas [sarong-like lengths of cloth with African patterns] and assorted other fabrics to manufacture clothing for resale.

This is her first loan, and she will continue to borrow another to expand her business. It is her dream to buy a car to help in distributing the products.
