A loan of $650 helped buy a bundle of clothes to increase her inventory.


Fatima De Los Angeles's story

Fátima P., 52, lives in Laureles Norte in the capital of Managua with her three adult children. She thanks God that she was able to raise them without help from their father.

She sells used clothes. She sells a lot because they are pretty, cheap, and the prices are accessible. With loans she has been able to buy more bundles of clothes and attract many more customers.

Her plans are to be able to improve her house and to help her children. She wishes to be able to have a store; she does not give up hope.

She will use this loan to buy bundles of clothes to increase her sales.
