A loan of $600 helped to buy blouses..


Elena's story

Elena is 64 years old, married, and has three children who are dependent on her. None of them are in school. Her husband Emigdio is a farm laborer.

Doña Elena is a merchant and has been selling clothes for four years. She will invest her loan in the purchase of new styles of blouses. Elena travels to the neighborhoods nearby to sell her goods and says that she has done very well. She would like to establish a shop where she can sell clothes, but for now she must go sell in the places that are closest to her. However, she does not rule out the opportunity of reaching her goal.
