A loan helped to buy second-hand clothing.

Dúo La Pilona Group's story

Dúo La Pilona: This time around, Lissette is representing the duo. She is divorced and has three grown children. She is also very hard working and responsible.

She launched her business of second-hand clothing sales, and since then she has managed both to provide her children with an education and to equip her home.

She is requesting the loan to be able to invest in her business and buy a bale of sorted clothing, because great season is coming up, when sales increase. This way, she will be able to have excellent merchandise to offer her customers.

She is grateful for the opportunity, and for their confidence in her.
