A loan of $300 helped to buy used clothing to sell: shirts, trousers, blouses and underwear.

Mayra Esperanza's story

Mayra, who is 28, lives with her partner and their son in the town of San Marcos, in Santa Barbara department. Five years ago, she started selling children's and adult clothing (shirts, jeans, shorts, blouses, underwear, etc.) in the street. The loan which she has applied for is her fourth loan cycle and is for 6,000 lempiras. She will invest it in the purchase of used clothing such as t-shirts, trousers, blouses and underwear to sell, which will enable her to boost her income. Her ambition is to stock a wider range of clothing, to be able to sell it over a wider area and, ultimately, improve her family's lifestyle.
