A loan of $550 helped to buy clothes to sell.

Alejandra María's story

Alejandra is 40 years old and is the mother of two children and the head of the household. She has been working for the last 8 years selling clothes to family and friends, which has enabled her to provide for her family and pay for her children’s schooling.

She wants to be able to offer her family a better quality of life, and to achieve this dream she wants to grow her business and eventually set up a big store, although she realizes that that will be in the more distant future. At the moment, she is requesting a loan to buy a variety of merchandise for the Christmas season, taking advantage of the fact that many families buy clothing at this time.
