A loan of $1,025 helped to buy construction materials.


Lucia's story

Lucia is 37 years old, married, with three children, ages 17, 10 and 6. She sells seasonal clothing at her stand in the 15 de Mayo area. This loan is her first with the institution.

Lucia is going to use this loan to buy construction materials for building a room in her house. Her reason for requesting this loan is lack of cash for the purchase of these materials.

Lucia faces challenges in her business, such as the weather, and also competition from other businesses selling clothing. She is going to use the profits in the purchase of a variety of clothing, and also in expanding her business so that she can get more customers.

Lucia is a very hard-working person, and feels happy about the opportunity offered by the granting of this loan.
