A loan of $925 helped to buy garments for sale.


Barsilisa's story

Barsilisa is a young woman, married to Daniel and living in Ciudad del Este. They do not have any children. She has a small store selling clothing in her home, and she also works at a public institution in the mornings to augment her income. She will buy the clothing in Argentina and Brasil, traveling weekly since the clothing there is very good. She started with money that she put together from previous jobs, and month by month she increases her business with the income that she receives from her other work. Through her hard work and help from her husband the business is growing. She is responsible and wants to get ahead; she has a jovial and entrepreneurial spirit and doesn't doubt that she will achieve all of the goals she has set for herself. She asks for this loan to buy garments so that she can continue her sales and make the income that she needs.
