A loan of $600 helped to purchase more merchandise for her small clothing business.


Elena's story

Elena is 22 years old and married. For 7 years, from approximately 2004, Elena has worked selling casual clothing such as jackets, sweatshirts, caps, etc. She began with money that her stepmother gave her, purchasing her initial inventory and later selling it, and generating an income for herself and her family. Right now Elena has a small amount of merchandise and an established customer base. She would like to offer them more variety, and the loan will enable her to purchase more inventory.
