A loan of $650 helped to buy traditional clothing in bulk.

Victoria's story

Victoria, 32, is married with 3 children, one of whom is in school. Her husband has worked as a collective transport driver on short routes for 7 years. Victoria started her business 3 years ago. She sells traditional clothing like skirts, blouses, güipiles [traditional woven blouses] and other things. She sells in cash and on installment plans and works every afternoon. She also sells tamales on the weekends - Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings.

She is asking for this loan to buy typical clothing in bulk and take advantage of the markets to sell them. She is happy because she can help her husband out economically and give her children a better future.
