A loan of $500 helped to invest in buying merchandise for her business.


Juanita's story

Juanita has been selling clothes outside her home for more than eight years. She is requesting a loan so that she can buy more merchandise such as shoes, men's and children's clothes, and electrical appliances. She does not have the capital she needs to make this investment and does not want to remove capital from her business since it is her family's source of income.

Juanita would like her business to have more merchandise and a range of products for sale. Her investment in her business will enable her to make more sales and she will use the money to repay her loan and pay for her two children's education. She is a single mother.
