Josefina's story

Mrs. S. is an enthusiastic and hard-working woman who hasn’t been married for very long. She has a small child and lives in her parents’ house. However, her parents are separated so only her mother lives with them. Her husband works in a funeral parlor and she contributes to the household expenses. She has put up a stand to sell used clothing in a busy neighborhood where similar stands are set up. She likes all that is related to sales and since it is working out for her, she is requesting the loan to buy merchandise and supply her stand. This will give her more earnings for herself and her family.
