Diamantina's story

Diamantina is 69 years old. She has been a widow for several years and she lives alone now that her children are older and married. She receives a pension each month which is not sufficient to cover her expenses. Because of this, for nearly the last eight years Diamantina has sold used clothing in the city market. She has the desire to make her business grow, now that it is a source of income that helps her to cover the cost of her necessities and it keeps her active and productive. It is because of this motive that she shared her needs and sought a loan with which she can invest in her business by buying more clothing and shoe merchandise. This way she may obtain better earnings.
