Josefa's story

Josefa is 30 years old. She is married and has two children. On eof them goes to school. Her husband has sold vegetables in the CENMA Guatamalaya market for 8 years. Josefa has sold traditional clothing in the city market for 11 years. People knw her and she sells on credit to her the customers she knows the best, since some people can't pay the price of this traditional clothing up front. She is asking for a new loan to stock her business with new designs of the clothes her customers ask her for. Josefa is happy because although there is competition, her sales haven't gone down. She thinks it is because of the service she gives her customers. She is a very hardworking woman and says that she is very happy and grateful for the support she has received with the loans that have been given to her at different times. She always makes her payments every month. She sends you her blessings and thanks you for her help.
