A loan of $1,675 helped to buy clothes and increase the variety of products that she offers her clients.


Miriam's story

Miriam has owned a general store for approximately 15 years, which she uses to generate an income to be able to support her household since she is a single mother and head of the household of her two children, because the children's father abandoned them long ago without making any financial contributions to support them.

Thanks to this business she has been able to get ahead and since she has spent so many years in the same place, people recognize her and this allows her to have good sales. Now her clients are requesting that - along with family needs products - she sell products such as clothing. Miriam seeks a loan to be able to buy clothing and increase the variety of products that she offers to her clients.

Her dream is to continue to improve her business and move her two children forward.
