A loan of $575 helped to buy clothes to sell.

Blanca Yised's story

Blanca is twenty-seven and a prime example that discipline and efforts can lead you to your goals. "What is important is to not give up, one must keep going even in the deepest darkness, and believe that there is a guiding light at the end of the tunnel." This is Blanca's explanation on how she made her great dream of having her own shop come true, in spite of the difficult moments she had to live through because of her financial situation. She works at her clothes shop every day from nine in the morning to six in the evening. This business is what enabled her to bring her two-year-old son a better quality of life. She asks for a loan to buy merchandise (jeans, shirts, sandals, and accessories) in order to increase her sales and generate the income necessary to cope with household expenses, seeing as her shop is her sole source of income.
