A loan of $550 helped to buy clothing.


María Angélica's story

María is 43 years old and sells secondhand clothing in her town. According to María, her business generates good income and allows her to sustain her household. She came up with this idea thanks to her sister who encouraged her. Her main customers are farm workers since María is only open on the weekends.


At the moment, she is requesting a loan to buy merchandise. This investment will allow her to improve her financial condition and increase her sales volume. In the future, Sra. María wants to have her own house so that she can guarantee that her family has a better quality of life.
