Hortencia's story

Hortencia is 41 years old and lives with her spouse in her own house. She is a merchant and the mother of six children, three of whom are older and three of whom attend school. She does not hold any specific role in her community.

With this loan she plans to expand her business, where she intends to buy used clothing for resale.

She has come for a loan for the first time. Her biggest dream to be officially married.
