A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more wholesale clothing such as blouses, shirts, skirts, shorts and trousers.


Maria Adela's story

Maria is 43 and lives in her own house with her two children, aged 14 and 20. She has been selling clothes for several years and her business is in the small square near her house. She uses what she makes from her sales to cover her household expenses. Maria is asking for a loan to buy more wholesale clothing such as blouses, shirts, skirts, shorts and trousers. This will mean that she can supply her business with more goods and so increase her profits, and in this way provide more financial security for her children.
