A loan of $3,400 helped a member to purchase more clothing to sell.

Siempre 10 Al Progreso Group's story

When Señora Zoila started selling hosiery, she remembers that she could only buy a dozen at a time to sell in the regional market where she lives in Ventanilla Callao. With the small profit that she earned she bought more and more until she increased her capital substantially. Then she started selling other types of clothing that her customers requested. She did very well but, unfortunately, one of her 4 children became ill. Because of having to care for him she had to set her business asiD. for several years.

Now she is starting anew and thanks to her business she has been able to do many things, like make improvements to her house and have her own stall from which to sell. Things are going very well and her sales increase every day, especially in winter when people buy a lot of warm clothing. She would like to have her clothing bazaar in her own house. With this loan she will buy more clothing to sell.

She is a member of the group Siempre 10 al Progreso for which she is the secretary. She joined the group approximately 2 years ago. She is grateful because the loans have been very helpful now that she is starting her business again.
