A loan of $1,375 helped purchase clothing.


Xiomara Carolina's story

Xiomara is 25 years old, married, and has two children; a daughter who is 6 and a son who is 10 years old. Xiomara is the head of household and a businesswoman. She sells cloths, juices, smoothies and jewelry and her husband works in a paint and bodyshop. On the weekends, he helps his wife with her business. They both support their family. To supply her business, Xiomara travels to the nearest city where she purchases what she needs, a journey of 24 kilometers. To get to where she purchases her merchandise, she takes a bus or a private car. The loan will be used to purchase clothing for men and women of all ages and to keep her business well stocked. She hopes she will have a strong business in her area in the future.
