A loan of $900 helped to purchase purses wholesale from the Port of Iquique.


Zulma's story

Zulma sells purses and bags at a stand near the Garita de Lima area. She lives with her husband and their two children, but her husband is travelling on business, although not for very long. He supports Zulma and their children. The loan will go toward purchasing purses and bags wholesale. She will travel to the Port of Iquique, Chile, where she buys merchandise. She travels with a work colleague who also received a loan from this institution. Together they sell purses. Next she hopes to sell blankets and comforters at Christmas, because there is high demand for these products. Zulma is a very hard-working, enterprising person, and she thanks the institution for its support.
