A loan of $1,625 helped to buy clothes.


Dalila Eufemia's story

Dalila has been a member of the Loma de la Cruz community bank for a number of years. She is a person whose good temper and cheerfulness prove infectious among her fellow group members. She likes her community bank because of the unity and friendship that exists among its members. She also likes the loans as they help her to grow her business.

Dalila is 59 years old, married, and has four children: three of her children are married and live independently. Her son who is still single works and helps out financially. Her husband is retired and now works as a trader. She does not own her own home but rents instead.

Dalila has been selling clothing for a number of years. She sells her merchandise throughout the city and also travels to other cities where she has customers who place orders with her. This business has allowed her to provide for her children and improve the financial situation of her household.

Dalila invested her previous loan in buying clothing which made her good profits. She will invest this loan in buying clothing as well so that she can fill some orders that she has to deliver to her customers.
