Santa Cruz, Bolivia / Clothing Sales

A loan of $500 helped to buy seasonal winter clothing like sweaters and jackets.


Ema Rosmery's story

Ema, age 50, sells clothes and cosmetics at a stand in the Barrio Nuevo area. This loan is her first cycle with the institution. Ema will use this loan to buy seasonal winter clothing like sweaters and jackets.

Her reason for requesting this loan is that it is very cold, and there is a lot of demand for these products. Ema faces challenges in her business, which are competitive prices and the lack of capital. She will use the profits to buy clothes according to the season and the demand.

Her wish for her business is to have her own store. She now rents a store, and she wants to use the rent expense to invest in her home.

Ema is happy and grateful to the institution for the support it has given her.
