A loan of $1,000 helped to buy blouses, shirts, undergarments for women and men, etc..


Merlín Arely's story

Merlin lives in a house she rents with her husband who works as a carpenter, and her daughter. She works selling clothing by walking to different neighborhoods near her place of residence.

With the money she gains and with the help of her husband, they can cover some costs of their home. Merlin is requesting this loan to buy more merchandise like: blouses, shirts, undergarments for women and men, etc,. to continue with her business since that is her sole source of work.

This way she can have better profits and provide a better life for her family.
