A loan of $425 helped to purchase merchandise for her business.


Esperanza's story

Ms. V. has been selling used clothing and shoes for three years. She started with clothing that her relatives sent to her from the United States and upon seeing that it was productive, she started to buy merchandise there to sell in her country. Her husband has a welding workshop located in their house and has been in the profession for more than 20 years. He says that in previous years, it was more productive but sales have gone down recently. This is why his wife had to bring capital to the family through a different means. She needs the loan to buy more merchandise and increase her sales, taking advantage of the winter season.
