A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothes.

Maria Ines's story

María, 55, is a hard working woman who sells clothes at home. However, before starting to sell clothes she was a domestic employee at a house but decided to leave that job because she was paid very little and she needed to be able to spend time with her children and give them a better life.

She has many goals for her business and wants to continue working to provide her children with a good life since she’s been separated from her husband for the last 10 years and she’s supported the household. Because of this, she wants the loan to buy clothes like pants, shirts and blouses.
