A loan helped to purchase more clothing to continue selling.


María Pedrina's story

María studied through secondary school, is single, and lives with her mother and a sister.

María has sold clothing for 5 years and learned it from her friend. She walks 3 km offering this product 4 days a week, from 10:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon.

In addition, she works at a restaurant in Playa El Espino, only seasonally. Previously, she made crafts to sell.

María will use the loan to purchase more clothing to continue selling.

She dreams of increasing her sales and having a well-established business.
