A loan of $400 helped to buy fruit and clothing.


Estanislao's story

Doña Estanislao is 58 years old and lives in San Francisco Gotera in the department of Morazán. She sells fruit and clothing for a living. She is a single mother and lives with her 16 year-old son who helps her with sales in the morning, since he goes to school in the afternoon. They live in their own home.

For 25 years she has had a door-to-door business selling clothing, such as shirts, blouses, skirts and trousers, as well as sliced fruit. Thanks to her work she has been able to provide for herself and her son and cover household expenses.

She is requesting a loan to buy fruit and clothing so she can improve business by increasing sales and income to help her son get ahead academically.

Doña Estanislao's dream is that her son continue and finish his studies so he can find a good job.
