A loan of $400 helped to purchase school supplies, notebooks, pens and stationary.

Irma Galinda's story

Irma is 52 years old. She is an inspiring woman who got ahead with her business selling balls and athletic shoes for a court near her house.

Irma works from 7:00am to 8:00pm. Her biggest problem is crime, as her neighborhood has become dangerous; she has been robbed a number of times. With the loan, she wants to purchase merchandise for her stationary store, like notebooks and pens. In the future, she wants to further supply her stationary store and for her children to live closer to her so they can help her.
