A loan of $1,125 helped to buy clothing to stock and to fill her orders.


Erika Maria's story

Erika is a very hardworking person who has gotten her family ahead through her great efforts. She sold clothing for six years during which she gained a lot of experience. Afterward, she worked for a florist, but as she did not make enough there to support her household, Erika decided to leave that job and start selling clothing on her own. Because of the significant financial difficulties she faces, Erika needs this loan to buy clothing to stock and to fill her orders.

Her dream is to have a shop to work out of, which would increase her sales and allow her to generate more income so she could offer her family a better quality of life.
