A loan of $450 helped to invest in clothes, shoes and cosmetics, so she can achieve increased sales and have good earnings, to meet her repayment commitments.

Bertha Adilia's story

Doña Bertha has a small business out of her home selling clothes. She has been increasing her inventory to introduce more variety, which she has achieved with a loan from Afodenic.

She is married and the mother of three children. He husband works in construction. Earlier she worked in domestic services, and part of her capital for her business came from her savings.

With this new loan, she will buy children's clothing, underwear, shoes, and cosmetics. She will be able to introduce new products which will help her improve her sales. Part of her sales are charged on credit; she has been working in this way for several years.

She is happy to be able to continue building this business on which her children depend.
