A loan of $1,200 helped display cases, clothing, shoes.


Ericka Dalia's story

Ericka, 33, is a hardworking woman who took advantage of a small inheritance 10 years ago to set up a little stationery store in the front area of her house.

Living in a peri-urban area, she has worked in her stationery store with great effort and dedication to support her child and help her husband with family expenses. She currently sells toys for $10.00, clothing, books for $3.00, notebooks for $1.00, pens for $0.30, and stationery. She gets up at 6:00 am to get her child ready for school, and then she works in her store. One of the problems she has is crime in the area. A few weeks ago, some people tried to rob her in the store.

Ericka wants to buy display cases, clothing and shoes with the loan money so she can diversify her store a little. In the future she would like to improve her home's construction and set up a clothing store in the city center.
