A loan of $450 helped buy merchandise for her end of year sale.

Adriana María's story

Adriana is 40 years old and is a single mother to her 15 year old daughter. Since she was young she has worked as a seller in different shops in the municipality of Itagüí, Antioquia, in Colombia.

6 years ago she made the decision to become independent and with the money she had saved up over so many years of working, she set up her own business - selling clothes and footwear. This activity is her only source of income for her and her family.

Adriana is currently asking for a loan so that she can buy merchandise for her end of year sale, as business increases at this time. Her biggest dream is to be able to offer her daughter a good education and to improve her quality of life.
