A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy merchandise.


Banco Mujer Unidas En Acción Group's story

Blanca, 51, is a widow. She has been a merchant for 3 years, selling clothing, shoes, and makeup that she buys from the distributors in the community. She only goes to the various homes in her community, offering her products that she assures are of very good quality. She has regular customers who await her visit every 15 days so that they can buy more items.

Blanca needs this loan to buy more merchandise and increase her profits to generate income for her household, because she is currently caring for her father, who is an elderly adult and needs costly medications.

Blanca chose to work with the Fundación Mujer because of the good service and low interest rates it offers. In the future, Blanca hopes to generate enough capital to buy merchandise from her suppliers with cash, and to increase her sales with the goal of improving her family's financial situation.
