A loan of $375 helped to buy new clothing (pants, polo shirts, blouses, etc.).

Liz Miriam's story

Liz is a 26-year-old woman and has a 4-year-old son, of whom she takes good care by selling clothing for adults and children by traveling around to make her sales. Liz has experienced the strong earthquakes and rains that have caused slight problems in her home. But with a lot of dedication and strength, she has learned to be able to overcome them.

Liz gets up very early every day with the aim of taking good care of her son before she goes out to make her sales. Her job consists of walking and going to visit people that live in the areas where she sells her products. She has always desired to get ahead for herself and her son, which is her main motivation.

Currently, her customers have increased a little because of the new school season. Parents need clothing for their children.

With a little help, Liz will be able to buy new clothing (pants, polo shirts, blouses, etc.), which will let her generate more income. Little by little, she will fulfill her big dream, "to have a new business and to have a location in the market," a place where she generates the majority of her sales.
