A loan of $650 helped to buy merchandise.


Erlinda's story

Ms. Erlinda is 23 years old, is a single mother who attended two years of primary education, and her son is currently in school. She is in the business of clothing sales, selling new and traditional women's clothing. She began this business by her own initiative and used her own capital, and she has been running this business now for five years.

She is asking for a loan that she will use to buy merchandise that would consist of skirts, blouses, sweaters, and other clothing items in order to improve her business and have a better position in life. She hopes to continue improving it, and to eventually have a big, well-recognized business.
