A loan of $550 helped to buy inventory.


Doris Iliana's story

Doris is 20 years old and lives with her mother and sister; her father abandoned them when they were very young. She has been selling clothing and shoes for the past two years, in order to help her family with some income. This is something she learned from her mother. Doris needs to buy merchandise: sandals, shoes, and slippers of various styles, so she is asking for a loan so that she can increase her inventory and strengthen her business. Her objective is to invest in merchandise to improve the business, grow financially, and help improve her family’s living conditions.
