A loan of $450 helped to pay for buying and selling clothes.


Maria De Lourdes's story

María de Lourdes is a single mother, and she is responsible for one child. She lives with her parents.

She requested the loan to buy clothing for women, men, and children. She has been working this way for four months. She says that it is giving her good results in her income and profits.

In order to do this work her family helps with her son because her husband abandoned her and her baby. She decided to work in order to support her son so that he would have the basic necessities and so that she would get ahead.

She wishes that her small business activity and her income will grow day to day. In time, she wishes that her business will grow even more.
