Hazell's story

Hazell lives in Granada and is a married, 24-year-old mother of 2 children, 5 and 10 respectively. She works in retail, selling clothing in the city’s local market. She started her business when her mother, who was moving to the United States, suggested she open a clothing store and offered to send her monetary support. So, she started her business and her mother sends her a little bit of money that she invests in her store. The variety of clothing she carries attracts lots of customers, even more when they have many uses. That’s why the other amount of capital she needs is to stock up her inventory and she hopes to get a loan. The school year is close and sales are very good during this time. That’s why she is soliciting a loan to buy school uniforms and backpacks. Her idea is to offer products that are in high demand in her area to improve her business’ sales and income, to invest in varied merchandise.
