A loan of $250 helped purchase cosmetics & shoes.


Aleyda Marynee's story

Aleyda is 39 years old. She and her husband care for their three children. With the help of her husband, who works as a taxi driver, Aleyda was able to save enough money to buy used clothing to sell so that she could help pay for basic expenses. The clothing she sells is both beautiful and inexpensive. In addition, she sells toys and Avon cosmetics through a catalog based on her customers’ likes and preferences. She offers her products on credit for a two-week period.


With this loan, Aleyda will buy cosmetics and shoes to offer to her customers. This will allow her to fulfill her orders because she does not have anything in stock except clothing. Her plans include making improvements to her house because it is part concrete and part wooden boards. She wants to make her house all concrete so that it will provide better security against crime. Aleyda also has goals to grow her business.
