A loan of $975 helped working capital.

Ilsen Maria's story

Ilsen, 29, is a very enthusiastic young woman. Nine years ago she began selling just a few products such as clothing and cosmetics. Later as this generated a good income she decided to invest part of the earnings in a variety of merchandise. Little by little and with effort she was able to stock her business. Currently she works from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. Although cash sales generate better earnings for her, she also likes to sell her merchandise as a street vendor as this gives her the opportunity to meet more customers.

With the loan she wants to buy clothing, cosmetics, footwear and towels for selling to her neighbors and thus bring in additional income. In the future she wants to have a more stable, steady business.
