A loan of $1,000 helped to buy underwear at wholesale.

Irma Esperanza's story

Irma is 49, married, and has three children ages 15,14 and 10, all school-aged. She sells lingerie and men's, women's and children's hosiery. She has a permanent stand at the La Ceja market in the city of El Alto, where she sells her products. This loan is her first with the institution.

Irma is going to use this loan to buy underwear at wholesale, and this way provide a variety of clothing to her customers and increase her earnings. If there is a balance remaining, she will use it to buy construction materials to build a wall on her house.

Her reason for requesting this loan is to keep improving her business. Irma is going to use the profits to continue buying a variety of underwear. Irma is a very hard-working person and is happy about the opportunity she has been offered.
