A loan helped a member to buy clothing to expand her business.

Mujeres Emprendedoras De Huaylkani Group's story

Andrea, 57, is single and has three children.

She works selling clothing. She started the business 20 years ago. A typical day for this client is to get up early, see to her children, and do the housework so she can then open her business and work at sales all day.

She met the members of her group because they're neighbors.

With her first loan, she invested in her business with a purchase of mannequins and clothing merchandise. She's going to invest her second loan in a wholesale purchase of clothing.

Her goals and aspirations for this loan are to offer her customers a wide variety of garments and to increase her income. Her life goal is for her family to be close and to not lack money.
