A loan of $775 helped to buy a bundle of premium clothing and two bundles of mixed clothing to sell.


Diana Mercedes's story

Diana is 28 years old, married, and has two children. She lives in the municipality of Olanchito, Yoro. Diana decided 10 months ago to have her own home business in order to generate other income for supporting her household.

She sells second-hand clothing such as pants, shirts, T-shirts, dresses, blouses, children's clothing and other items. The loan for 15,000 lempiras that she is currently applying for, Diana wants to invest in her business. With the loan, she is going to buy more used clothing.

She will buy a bundle of premium clothing and two of mixed clothing, as the year-end season is coming, and she's going to build up her inventory and increase her sales.

Her goal is to improve her business each day so that she can help her family get ahead in life.
