Cinthya's story

Cinthya is 19 years old. She is a very creative, humble, and hard-working woman. She is single and does not have any children. She lives at home with her parents and her siblings.

Cinthya's work consists of selling garments. This means she has to travel every month to another city in order to buy the garments wholesale. She selects the best quality clothes with modern designs and the best brands. She generally sells all her merchandise personally to her friends, neighbours, and acquaintances at affordable prices shortly after buying them. She coordinates the payment period for the garments with her customers, offering the necessary conveniences and time so they can continue buying new garments. She has been doing this for two years and it is going well. In the mornings she works - developing her professional career in one of the city's accounting firms. Occasionally she does entertaining at children's parties.

She likes both of her jobs because she can put her undeniable gift of relating to other people into practice, and she can develop her creativity and good taste. She hopes to be able to make her dream of having her own clothing store and continuing to grow financially a reality. This is her first loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. She is very happy to know she has financial support, as it makes her feel more secure about advancing with her work. Therefore, she is committed to making her payments on time. She is also very happy to belong to her communal bank since she has observed that all of its members are responsible and supportive people.

With the amount requested, she will buy a greater quantity of merchansdise, the bulk of which will be women's garments. She will also supply herself with some articles that she uses in her decorative work.
