A loan of $1,225 helped to purchase sports clothing and cosmetics to sell.

Maria's story

The previous loan allowed me to be able to offer my customers longer repayment terms. With that I have managed to expand my market. The problem I previously faced was that the providers gave me credit terms of 30 days. This limited my ability to offer my customers adjustable terms according to their capacity to pay.

Now I am participating in a housing project. At present I am living in a house that my sister provided me with after my divorce.

It is hoped that this December they will award the houses. However, my participation with this housing committee would not have been possible without the financial help that the Fundación Mujer gave me. With the income from developing my business activity of itinerant sales I have been able to get in front of the expenses. These are the expenses that I have had to make in pursuit of a house for my son and me.
