Olga Morena's story

Olga Morena Garcia D. L. is 35 years old. She lives in Ahuachapán department with her husband who sells watches. She also lives with her two children aged 9 and 11.

Olga sells women's and men's clothes. She also sells shoes, sandals and maternity clothes. Her business is located in the center of Ahuachapán. She starts work at 8.00am and finishes at 6.30pm. She has a lot of competition since there are a number of different types of sales businesses here. Most are businesses which sell clothes and their prices are very competitive. For this reason, Olga is requesting a loan so that she can increase her inventory and thereby have the necessary money to buy wholesale, obtaining her clothes and shoes at lower prices so that she can sell them more cheaply. This will bring her more customers which will translate into better profits which will be good for her household.
