A loan of $900 helped to buy inventory for her business.


Cornelia's story

Cormelia sells new clothing in different parts of the city. She is asking for this loan because she has been offered merchandise at a very good price and she would like to take advantage of that opportunity so she can have a greater variety of products for her customers. She has been selling women’s clothing for more than 27 years. Cormelia is a widow and has two daughters who depend on her and are studying at university. She would like to improve her business, increase her income, and help them finish their studies for professional careers so that they will have a better future. She plans to repay this loan with the earnings she gets from the business. Her family expenses will be covered by the pension she receives as a result of her husband’s death.
