A loan of $500 helped to buy footwear, cosmetics and clothing for children and adults.


Marlyn Lissette's story

Marlyn lives in a neighborhood with a high crime rate. She is the mother of 3 children, the youngest is just one month old. Her priorities and necessities change as her children grow. The income from her business of selling clothes and cosmetics varies. Some days are good, others are lacking. Marlyn is requesting this loan because she wants to invest in footwear, cosmetics and clothing for children and adults to offer more variety to her clients. She hopes to increase her sales and prepare little by little to stay well-stocked so as to take advantage of the December sales which are not far off.
