A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase pants for carnival parties.

Mery's story

Mery is 28 years old, single and has a 4-year-old son. She makes a living selling clothing outdoors. This is her first loan with this institution, and she plans to use it to purchase pants for carnival parties, where she has a lot of sales. Mery confronts business risks like competition and high margins by reinvesting in her business, like she did with the profits from a previous loan. Mery's wish is to grow her business and expand to household appliances, which are brought in from the city of Oruro but require more capital. Mery feels grateful for your support.
