A loan of $1,600 helped to buy merchandise in bulk (tops, jeans, t-shirts, stockings).


Viviana's story

Viviana is a single mom with a two-year-old child. She currently sells merchandise to her family, friends, and neighbors in the area where she lives. She offers items such as jeans, tops, jackets, and t-shirts, among other things, and she uses the money she makes to help support her family. She has been in this business for two years and she learned from a friend who does the same kind of work. Her spirit of self-improvement and progress drive her to search for options that will allow her to keep moving forward, so she is requesting a loan to use to buy merchandise in bulk (tops, jeans, t-shirts, stockings). This will allow her to stock up enough to satisfy the increased demand during the upcoming Christmas season, reducing her costs and ultimately increasing her profit margin on each sale, which means a return on her investment. Viviana, like all enterprising and visionary women, wants to continue working hard to achieve her dream of having a shop where she could sell all her products to the general public. This would be a path to a higher quality of life for her and her family.
