A loan of $550 helped to buy a new washing machine and to service the ones she already has.


Eulalia's story

Eulalia, 47, is a single mother of two children. She manages her washing machine rental business. Initially the idea was her son’s who recognized a profitable business in this activity but when he got a job with a firm a year ago she took over managing it. This activity consists in renting washing machines by the hour; that is to say, the customer calls and requests the service and the washing machine is delivered to her home for the amount of time the customer pays for. She’s managed to earn family income this way. She’s a kind, hardworking, driven woman who is dedicated to this work which has become her main source of income. She strives diligently so that it will persevere over time. She needs the loan she’s requesting to buy a new washing machine and to service the ones she already has. In this way she’ll expand capacity to meet customer demand and provide better service with assets that operate adequately. All of this will be reflected in increased income that she hopes to use to reach her dream of having a firm selling washing machines on credit that will lead to improved living conditions for her and her family.
