A loan of $500 helped to buy seasonal clothing.


Amanda's story

Amanda, 63, is married and has four children who already are adults and have formed their own families. She is a very hardworking woman who does not like to depend on her children because she always has worked to help her husband with the expenses. Amanda works in a school that offers various workshops. She gives classes on beauty and occasionally on handicrafts. For four years she also has had a business selling used clothing where she offers a variety of clothing for women and men. Right now she is requesting the loan to buy clothing for cold and hot weather because the new season is approaching, which is spring, and she wants to be prepared with clothing appropriate for the weather.
