A loan of $1,100 helped to buy clothing like blouses, shirts, and dresses.


Susy Amparito's story

Susy, age 41, lives in Libertad. She first started selling underwear. However, when her father died she decided to sell various clothing, shirts, blouses, and dresses. She did this because she had to have more money to cover the household expenses.

She sells her merchandise Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. She is facing two problems in her work. The problems are the lack of money to buy merchandise and the thieves that are trying to do damage to the neighborhood.

She does not have a husband, nor does she have any children.

She will use the loan to buy merchandise for her business. She will buy blouses, shirts, and dresses.

Her dream is to have her own place at her house. She wants this in order to be more comfortable and to not run the risks of selling in an itinerant manner.
