A loan of $250 helped to buy clothing for resale.


Dina Lizeth's story

Dina is 26 years old and from the Teustepe settlement. She is married, has a three year old son, and sells clothing on foot. She has had her business for eight years and began with money she saved up when she worked as domestic help and money that her husband gave her. He worked as a bus fare taker.

Dina is asking for a loan to buy merchandise such as pants, dresses, shoes, etc. She estimates that this loan will help her increase her inventory of what she sells the most. Her plans for the future are to request another loan to continue expanding her business and in this way increase her profit. Her next goal is to add merchandise that she currently doesn’t have so that she can continue to increase her sales.
