A loan of $875 helped to buy clothes.


Zoyla Patricia's story

Zoyla has been selling clothes and used items outside her house for the last two years. She’s requesting a loan to buy merchandise consisting of winter clothes which is what her customers are requesting. At the moment, she does not have the money needed to make this investment and she does not want to decapitalize the business’ income.

Zoyla and her husband have three children. Two of them are attending middle school and her adult daughter attends university and is also working to help pay her school costs. With profits from her business she will repay the loan since her husband will take care of family expenses and her two younger children’s school costs with the salary he earns working as a general employee in a hotel.

She wants to improve her business’ income and knows well that by investing she will obtain better results so that her business will improve.
