A loan of $850 helped to buy winter clothing.


Liz Gabriela's story

Liz is 20 years old. She is single and lives with her parents in the city of Curuguaty, in the Barrio San Miguel neighborhood. She has had a clothing store for more than 2 years. She was able to open her store with a little bit of capital that she had saved—that was all she had to start with. Now, with great sacrifice, Liz is getting ahead and generating income that she contributes for the family’s expenses. She has an established client base because her business is located in the center of town, at the intersection of May 14 and Nanawa, one of the main avenues and just a few blocks from the main bus station, where many people gather every day. She needs the loan to buy coats and winter clothing, since it is now the winter season.
