A loan of $225 helped to buy sandals for both sexes, blouses, shirts, and skirts.


Sandra Elizabeth's story

Sandra lives with her husband and two children. They live on her mother-in-law's property. Sandra sells snacks, sandals, and a variety of clothing. She learned from her mother, who worked in this business. She has been doing it for five years.

She is applying for a loan to purchase sandals for both sexes. She will also buy a stock of clothing such as blouses, shirts, and skirts and some ingredients for snacks. This will allow her to maintain the necessary stock, taking advantage of the holiday season at the end of the year to generate more income for her family.

Her dream is to set up her business at a fixed location, to avoid making sales as a street vendor. In the future she also wants to construct a house.
