A loan of $625 helped to buy clothes.


Marcelina Josefa's story

Marcelina is a native of the small village of Nimasac, but now she is renting a home in the community of Vasquez. For 15 years, Marcelina has bought and sold American clothing in the town market on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Now she needs a loan to expand her business to the other days of the week, given that she was authorized to sell in another location in the town plaza. For this reason, she needs new capital to be able to develop and to have an adequate standard of living for her family.
