A loan of $1,500 helped to buy men's hats..


Maria's story

Maria is 40. She sells traditional hats for indigenous women. This will be her first loan cycle with the institution. Maria will use the money to buy hats to stock her business for upcoming festivals and regional anniversaries when sales are good. She has applied for a loan to increase working capital. It is a challenge for Maria to stock merchandise, and she will use her profits to keep buying at wholesale.
