Betty Edilma's story

Betty, 28, has been selling clothes and sandals for a year in order to take care of her daughters because her husband sells fruit. They live in a house made of reeds and their only basic service is water.

Betty started selling sandals. Gradually, this went well for her. With the savings she had, she started to sell clothes. Now she works from 8:00 AM travelling the dirt roads in her area. Although some of her merchandise has been stolen, Betty continues working to give her daughters a better life.

In order to increase their income Betty would like to buy clothing with the loan. In the future she wants to built a cement house and have a clothing store.
