A loan of $300 helped to buy used clothes such as pants, skirts, blouses, etc.


Julia Maritza's story

Julia is 56 years old, originally from Managua, and has three children, one of whom is completing a university degree in business administration. She is in the commercial trade, and makes a living through the sale of used clothing. She began selling used clothing 10 years ago. Her desire to excel helped her to go forward selling other products such as soft drinks, beans, etc.

Today she counts 10 years of having her used clothing business. In her business she receives the support of her daughter. Her hope is to diversify the products for her business.

Julia requests the loan to buy used clothing such as pants, skirts, blouses, etc., all products that are most requested by her customers. She thinks that these products will help her increase her sales, at the same time improving her earnings.

Her future plan is to start a juice stand in order to generate more income, since it is something that will help her family get ahead. Her next goals are to invest more in her business, buying more clothes to expand her business.
