A loan of $575 helped to buy clothes wholesale.

Graciela's story

Mrs Graciela is married and her mother lives in her home and it's fortunate to have her since she is a person of advanced age and requires a lot of care. She is being offered bundles of assorted clothing at a very good price, which is why she is applying for help because she does not have all the money and she says that it is a very good opportunity to stock her clothing shop.

She will be able to attract more customers since the clothing she will buy will be for all ages and in good condition and that way her profit margin will be higher. Together with her husband they work trading, being older people who can't find good work opportunities in a factory. So selling clothing from market to market has benefited them a lot since it is going well and they can pay their expenses without having to ask for help from the rest of their family.
