A loan of $425 helped to buy women's and girls' undewear.


Mirian Marcelina's story

Mirian Sánchez is a merchant; her main activity is the sale of women’s and children’s underwear. Her stand is in the bus terminal on the north side of the Contreras firm. She has five years experience. Her business is semi-itinerant because on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays she sets herself up in the bus terminal but on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays she’s an itinerant vendor. Mirian is married and has three children who depend on her 100%. Her husband is pastor in an Evangelical church. Mirian decided to go into business because their economic situation wasn’t very favorable and now the income her business produces helps her husband meet certain household expenses. The loan will be used to buy underwear.
