A loan of $325 helped to stock her used clothes business.

Sabas's story

Sabas is the single mother of her 18 year old son. She is 50 years old, and she lives in the village of Milagro Santa Cruz of Yojoa.

Three years ago she decided to buy and sell used clothes. She did so because she did not have a way of getting income to support her family. She sells blouses, pants, dresses, shorts, and others. She is motivated because she has work and she gets income.

Her sales have increased because she always keeps her business stocked with the loans she has requested. This current loan is the seventh loan she has requested. She wants to buy more clothes to stock and to offer new garments to her customers.

She wants to continue working and doing well in her business. That is where she gets income for the household expenses.
