A loan helped to buy cosmetics, lotions, lingerie, shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, etc. to stock her business.


Vilma Lissette's story

Vilma is married and has two children, a 12-year-old boy and a seven-year-old girl. The eldest is in sixth grade and the youngest in second.

Vilma says she must be available to care for her elderly mother and her business is selling clothing. She works full time and started the business to earn more income for the household and to cover her university studies. Her husband works outside the home.

She has requested a loan to have more cashflow to buy cosmetics, lotions, lingerie, shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, etc. to stock her business and provide better customer service.

Vilma hopes the investment will help improve sales and income in order to cover family expenses and pay back the loan.

Her dream is to expand her business much more and help to have a good family economy.
