Filomena has five years experience in the clothing business. She started with very little capital and invested in small clothing items such as undergarments and socks. She gradually increased her inventory and grew her client base and began selling shirts and pants for men, women and children.

One of her goals is to open a boutique in a commercial area. She plans to invest the loan in clothing and fill her pending orders.
