A loan of $1,125 helped to buy clothing to stock up her business and fulfill an order that one of her customers has made.

Omaira Lucia's story

Omaira is married and is the mother of 3 children, and she wants to provide her children with the best possible education. About 3 years ago, when she won a raffle, she decided that she would use this money to start a business selling clothing to the residents of her town. With the money that she won in this raffle, she bought clothing and started to sell it to her relatives, friends and neighbors. In this way, she was contributing income to support the household expenses. Since then, Omaira has increased her sales, because of the good quality of her products. Thanks to the income that Omaira generates, her 3 children have been able to enjoy a better education and a better quality of life.

Omaira now has a large order from a customer which she cannot fulfill with the stock that she has on hand, but she also does not have enough money to purchase this merchandise. For this reason, Omaira hopes that a loan will provide her with the opportunity to make a purchase of clothing to stock up her business and also fulfill this large outstanding order.

Omaira hopes that in this way, her income will increase considerably, as this order is really big and this customer has a good payment history. Omaira's dream is that her husband and their 3 children will have a better quality of life, and in the future the children will be able to get a college education that will prepare them to get a high-paying job.
