A loan of $450 helped to buy merchandise for her business.


Irma Gabina's story

Mrs Espinoza requires a loan to buy merchandise to invest in her business selling clothes and shoes from a catalog. She tells us that she needs greater investment now that the season is changing to winter. This is why she is requesting a loan. Mrs Espinoza receives a pension because she injured her back but this hasn't stopped her creating a new source of income as a saleswoman because the monthly pension which she receives is not enough. She is a very active and independent person and she continues supporting her children as much as she can. She also helps her grandchildren with their education.
