A loan of $500 helped to buy used clothing.

Ana Julia's story

Ana is 44 years old and she is a merchant. She is married and the mother of 2 children. She lives in the city of Managua and she sells used clothing, an activity that she has been doing for 10 years. She began working as a merchant by selling cookies to students. Years later, she decided to sell used clothing by foot, door to door, traveling long distances around the city in search of customers.

Today she needs a loan so that she can buy used clothing and take advantage of the upcoming Mother's Day when she can sell even more products. In the short term, she would like to be able to increase her daily business and leave Managua when selling her merchandise.
