A loan of $800 helped to buy plants to sell.


Iris María's story

Iris María G. C. is 18 years old. She is a very enterprising young woman who has worked together with her mother since she was very young. Her mother works selling various products. Iris also lives with her older sister who is 19. She sells plants in Benedición de Dios Square, in Colón, in La Libertad department.

Iris makes good profits because her plants are very pretty and she sells them at an affordable price. She carries out her business with a desire to improve her family's finances and provide all the help she can to her mother. For this reason, she is requesting a loan which will provide her with the money she needs to invest in new plants such as poinsettias, orchids and others which make very good gift choices this Christmas. With this loan, Iris hopes to improve and continue growing in her business.
