A loan of $225 helped to invest in the purchase of clothing.


Amelia Del Carmen's story

Doña Amelia is a small retailer who makes her living selling new and used clothing. She sells her products door to door in her municipality.

She has experience in this type of work, proof of which is that she currently needs more capital to purchase the variety of clothing that her customers are requesting.

Doña Amelia started her business because she needed to give her children a better quality of life. Her partner emigrated to another country to look for work. Even so, the family wasn't doing very well. By her own initiative, Doña Amelia started her own business to earn money to support her home.

Her start-up capital came from the money that her husband made working in another country. Instead of spending the money, Doña Amelia decided to invest it in earning a better income.
