A loan of $675 helped to purchase a variety of clothing to keep expanding her business.


Johana Maria's story

Johana is still selling new clothes to support her family and herself. Part of her sales go towards her living expenses, as her children are still little.

For years Johana's goal has been to improve her home, but since her other priority is her children, she has to invest her money in her business to balance out her costs.

Now with this new loan she will make improvements on the internal walls of her home, starting by tearing down the front wall, which will leave the roof in better condition and will provide a safer environment for her family. For this project she will need to buy cement blocks, iron and bags of cement. She will make improvements to the entire structure, as only one part is in good condition.
