A loan of $500 helped working capital.


Claudia Marina's story

Marina has many family responsibilities, but she has always enjoyed working to provide for her family. Her job is buying and selling clothing. She has a 13-year old daughter who is the main reason why she puts in a lot of effort and works hard to provide her with a decent education and pay for household expenses.

Her husband, who is a mechanic, also contributes to household income. Together they are improving their lot in life.

Marina is asking for a loan to buy pants, extra-large garments, dresses, dress shirts and pants--the items most requested by her customers. Her greatest wish is to have a shop in her home.
