Miriam Estela's story

Miriam Estela Garcia lives in the Soyapango neighborhood of San Salvador. She is a widow who has learned to support her family with strength and hard work. Miriam operates a business selling clothes and shoes. She goes out every day to sell her goods and, in the course of a week, she travels to every part of the country, working as a street vendor in a different place every day. Miriam is asking for this loan so that she can buy more merchandise and, in this way, increase her earnings margin.
