A loan of $1,500 helped to buy clothes and other items such as toys for the Christmas season.

Silvia Mercedes's story

Silvia is 42 years old and has one son. She has worked for many years selling clothes, and by her own initiative began her own business. She acquires her merchandise in the capital of El Salvador, and travels there every 15 days to make purchases.

The loan that she is asking for will be used to buy clothing and other items for the Christmas season such as toys. With this investment, she will be able to offer a greater variety of products to her clients, and hopes to improve her income and grow her business day by day as a result.
