A loan helped to buy quilts as she is expanding her business.


Marcia's story

Marcia is 21 years old, and is single with no children. She lives with her aunts because her parents passed away some time ago.

Marcia works as a toy vendor in one of the busiest local markets in the city, which she has been doing for four years. She started because she was not able to find a job so she decided to work independently.

As she is expanding her business, Marcia is asking for this loan to buy quilts, she will not stop selling toys but she also wants to sell quilts near doorways of large events. The credit will be of much use to her, as she will be able to buy a larger quantity and get a better price and she will diversify the products she sells. Marcia hopes that she can become a better saleswoman in the future.
