Filena De La Cruz's story

Filena is a small merchant who has grown in her business thanks to effort and loans from the institution. She sells cosmetics, new clothes and accessories like: wallets, purses and shoes among other orders she gets. She started out several years ago with just a few products using her husband’s savings; he is a taxi driver.

Currently, sales have slacked off so she wants to invest in more clothes and cosmetics in order to improve sales and cover basic household expenses.
