A loan of $375 helped to buy more clothes to sell in her store.

Maritza's story

Maritza is 46 years old. She is married and lives in a rented house with husband and their 2 children.

Maritza earns a living selling garments of different makes, models and sizes, for both men and women. She replenishes her merchandise on a monthly basis with items sent to her from another city. She has been working in this field for 5 years. She receives the support of her son and her husband who help her move the heavy goods.

What she likes about her work is the ease with which she acquires new customers. It also allows her to organize her time and perform household chores at home. Now her main goal is to have an area of her house where she can establish a small boutique to continue developing.

On this occasion she requests 1000 Peruvian Nuevo Soles. She is very excited to know that there are people who offer financial backing to help people continue developing their work. She also commits to being a responsible and punctual partner.

With the requested amount she will buy a larger quantity of merchandise comprised of garments such as t-shirts, shorts, pants, blouses and linen.
