Señora María works selling clothes that she brings over from Chile every other month. She lives in the Irpavi area in a rented home. She is requesting the loan to purchase merchandise for the year-end festivals, so that she can get seasonal clothing. She sells to her friends and to the moms of her children's school-friends.
