A loan of $1,900 helped to purchase merchandise wholesale.

Maria Idalia's story

Sra. Idalia is requesting a loan from us again to stock her small sales venue since the school year is beginning and she wants to be able to acquire new clothes so she can sell them before people are pressed by school expenses. As this is the season, there is a larger influx of people wanting to sell, at least double the number who usually sell in the area.

She has spent more than 6 years engaged in this trade. Formerly she sold blankets and bedclothes, however that business did not earn enough, so she chose to sell second hand clothing, while her husband works in Laredo, Texas as a transfer driver all week and only comes to the city once a week. Together, with their two salaries, they are able to pay for family expenses.
