Estela's story

Estela P., 35 years old, has been married for 17 years to Ever Cristaldo, 39 years old. This marriage has produced two children who are 17 and 8 years old. The first will finish high school this year, and the other is going to start third grade.

Estela started her business five years ago with a little bit of money that her husband gave her. He builds furniture. With the money she bought used clothing, and over time she turned this into a clothing business.

She wants her business to grow each day, and with this loan she will increase her revenue so that someday she can pay for her children to go to college and be successful people.

She is requesting this loan to purchase merchandise such as slacks, shorts, shoes, blouses, children's outfits, shirts, t-shirts, and sneakers, as well as materials for her husband who does carpentry so that she can offer a variety of items to her customers.
