A loan of $1,400 helped to buy school supplies.

Sandra Damaris's story

Sandra is 31 years old, and since her adolescent years she has had a passion for business. She reports that when she was in grade school she was the one who sold sweets for her class. She always dreamed of having her own business, but never had the resources to realize her goals. When she finished her bachelor's degree, she worked for a candy company. She labored there for several years, and eventually left when she became tired of being exploited by her superiors.

She then began selling clothes to neighbors and relatives, and given the profitability of the business, she decided to open a shop. Currently she sells items such as stationary, clothes and ice cream. Her main goal is to expand her business. Thus, she is seeking a loan to buy school supplies to sell at the beginning of the year.
