A loan of $300 helped to buy clothes.


Maria Nelis's story

María is 32 years old, single, and lives in San Miguel with her parents. Her business is selling clothes. She sells her merchandise in neighboring villages. She works from 8.00am to 4.00pm every day María needs a loan to buy clothes since this business needs movement in terms of what is sold because fashions and colors change. With this investment, she hopes to meet her customers' demands and be able to count on their loyalty. In the future, María's goal is to buy her own home, to set up her business there and to have a family of her own.
