A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothing.

Veneranda Janeth's story

Veneranda is 50 years old and from Leon. She is a humble merchant who sells clothing. She is the single mother of two children who was only able to complete the third year of middle school, given the poor conditions she grew up in. She doesn’t want her children to have the same future. She started selling clothing on foot at age 45 because she needed a way to be independent and generate income at the same time. She later decided to build a cart so she can sell her clothing and set up in a stable location in the market so she can sell clothing. This is her first business and it generates a daily income.

She expects her business to grow so she can get ahead as an entrepreneur. This will require financing to buy more clothing such as blouses, dresses, skirts, pants, towels, socks, shorts, etc. Her future plans are to obtain a spot in the market where she can set up a store and increase her sales. One of her goals is to be able to repay this debt so she can request another and be able to continue investing in her clothing business.
