Blanca's story

Blanca is 36 and lives with her partner Jorge, 44, for more than 17 years. They have three children, one girl and two school-aged boys. Blanca works selling clothes; she began this business after her return from Buenos Aires, where she worked as a housekeeper. Her partner is a builder and helps with household expenses. Blanca sells all kinds of clothing and with the income from this activity helps support her family. In spite of having a lot of competition, she doesn’t complain; rather she says that she already has a good customer base to whom she caters daily, weekly or monthly.

The loan that she is requesting is for the purchase of business merchandise such as jeans, shirts, suits, jackets, tracksuits, sweaters, boots, etc. that she will supply according to her customers’ requests. Later they will be charged in easy installments.
