Evelyn Marisol's story

Evelyn works as a street vendor selling clothes. She is 25 years of age and is a single mother to a two-year-old child. She lives with her parents. She works as a trader in order to be able to cover her expenses and those of her child. She has worked in this business for two years. She began it with a friend, and she makes home visits, house by house, three times a week. She is seeking a loan to buy blouses, and underwear for both sexes. This loan will give her the economic resources to strengthen her business, improving her sales and customer service.

She hopes to enlarge her business, in order to have a stable source of work. With this she will be generating the income to cover her expenses and take care of the needs of her child.
