A loan of $600 helped to purchase clothing in bulk.

Karen's story

Karen, 24 years of age, is single and does not have children. Currently she studies and lives at home with her mother. Karen's work consists of selling clothing of different brands, styles and sizes for all ages, for men as well as for women. She has a stall in the central market of her city and thus her sales are gratifying. All of her merchandise is renewed each month, and for that reason she travels to another city where she finds everything necessary at lower prices. She has been working in this field for 10 years, since from that time she has been helping her mother to do the same work. What she likes most about her work is the ease with which they gain new customers. Her charisma and happiness help her make good sales in a short time period.
For that reason the money that she obtains is earned with greater speed, and in addition, it allows her to organize her time and complete domestic tasks in her home. At this time she is asking for 1600 Soles (Peruvian currency). She is very happy with the financial support that she has been given so that she can continue moving forward. Also, she promises to comply with the repayment deadlines. With the requested loan she will buy clothing in bulk including polos, shorts, pants, blouses and sheets.
