A loan helped to buy and sell typical, indigenous clothing, such as tunics, sashes and skirts.


Micaela's story

Micaela is a very hardworking woman. She is 61 years old and married. She has a beautiful family and lives in the community of Santo Tomas La Unión.

Five years ago she started buying and selling clothes indigenous to her region. Her business is located on one of the principal streets of her community.

For Micaela it is very important to be able to strengthen her business. For that reason she now seeks a loan she will use to buy more typical clothing items, such as tunics, sashes and skirts. This will allow her better satisfy the needs of her customers.

This loan is special because:

It targets low-income borrowers who can't access typical microfinance loans.
