A loan of $200 helped buy and sell fabrics.

Mariata's story

Mrs. Mariata is a 35-year-old woman, married with three children. She lives a few kilometers from the branch office. Her main activity is trading fabrics which she has done for the past four years.

She manages her personal expenses and helps her husband in managing family expenditures..

She starts her day at 4 pm to finish at 7 pm because she takes care of household chores in the morning.

She needs this loan to increase her stock of goods, which are highly valued by her customers. With help from IMCEC she would like to open a shop selling ready-to-wear clothes, and diversify her activity.
