A loan of $750 helped purchase typical clothing.

Josefina Aquino's story

Josefina Aquino, 49 years old, says that her life has always been dedicated to sales. She tells us that she sells typical clothing on the weekends out of the doorway of her home along with fruit, but she travels three times each week to another department (county) to sell typical clothing. She feels fulfilled because with the help of the loan she received as well as through her revenue, she can continue paying off her house, which is her greatest dream, and she is almost done paying for it. By working in her business, she is also helping her sister financially to care for her four nieces/nephews since her sister is single and, Josefina says, far from being able to afford her own home and do what makes her happy.
