A loan of $1,500 helped to buy bundles of clothing.

Bertha's story

Señora Bertha is 50 years old. She is married, and she continues with the same business of selling secondhand clothing from her sales stall, which is located in the Villa Copacaband zone. This loan is her second one within this institution. Señora Bertha is going to use this loan to purchase bundles of secondhand clothing for her business. Her reason for applying for this loan is the lack of capital. Señora Bertha faces challenges in her business, such as competition, since there are many people who work in this business in her zone. She is going to use the profits to continue improving her sales stall. Her wish for her business is to have it stocked with merchandise to offer a variety of products to her customers. Señora Bertha is a hard-working person. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support offered, since this is the only activity [she has] that allows her to support herself and her family.
