A loan of $1,000 helped purchase seasonal clothing.


Blanca Nieves's story

Blanca lives in the house of her mother, who died a long time ago and Blanca stayed to take over the home since her siblings don't live in the country. Blanca is separated from the father of her first three children, who are now full grown but still live with her. Blanca also has a 4-year-old daughter with her current partner, whom she does not live with. She makes a living selling seasonal clothing on credit (blouses, footwear, pants, etc.), which she offers to her friends and acquaintances, and the business is going very well. Blanca wishes in the future to have her own clothing store in her home. She is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise for the end of the year since the parties around that time are when she has her best sales.
