A loan of $600 helped to purchase earrings and jewelry.


Flor Maria's story

Flor is 43 years old and she lives in a suburban region named Duran. This location is known for its diminishing ecology. She is a vendor and she has a stand on the main street in Duran.

Following her separation from her husband she was left to support her very young children. She purchased jewelry and hair accessories. Since then she has worked from 8a.m. to 4p.m. every day to support her family. She sells barrettes for $.50 each and earrings for $1 each.

She would like to keep up her sales though she wishes to increase her stock of barrettes and earrings. In the future she hopes to have a store for her business and to provide her children with a better quality of life.
