A loan of $700 helped work capital.


Soledad's story

Soledad, age 33, is a single mother. She lives in her parents’ house, and they help take care of her young daughter. She started her business of selling clothes some years ago. She started with a small amount of capital that she got as a worker in a plant. She already has a large number of customers. Besides offering them good prices and good service, she guarantees the merchandise that she sells. She used the profits from this business to buy a “mototaxi” (three wheeled motorized vehicle) on credit. The mototaxi generates greater income. Soledad dreams of giving her daughter and her parents decent living conditions in addition to having their own house. Soledad puts all of he earnings towards her school-age daughter’s education and towards supporting her parents.
