A loan of $1,000 helped inventory.


Maria Isabel's story

41 year old María is a hard working woman who has liked being in business and selling door to door since she was a little girl.

Little by little she has varied her merchandise, but continues to sell door to door. Her friends and neighbors, who enthusiastically buy from her, also help her earn a greater income. She sells men’s and women’s clothing and perfumes in order to vary her merchandise a bit. One thing that sets her apart is that, even though she is 41 years old, she is studying at university and her classmates also buy some items from her.

She wants to continue in her business, and wants to use the money from this loan to buy pants, shirts, and shoes. This was she will be able to offer a variety of merchandise.
