María Esther's story

María Ester is fifty-eight years old. She makes a living selling custom-made merchandise, mainly men's clothing, pajamas, accessories, lingerie, and personal use products. She learned this business from a friend and, ever since, it has allowed her to generate her own income. This income has covered costs for her basic necessities and has allowed her to economically support her parents. With the goal of increasing her sales, María is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of products wholesale in order to reduce costs and increase her profit margin. This will improve her income and the quality of life for her family.
