A loan of $1,500 helped to buy clothing.


Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is a widow who puts forth lots of effort and has managed to set up a small stall in a Managua market. There she sells second hand clothing for children, teens, and adults and uses her income to pay for her basic household needs and buy food. She is asking for this loan to buy more merchandise to offer her customers, and buy boxes of packs of various types of clothing. In this way Ana Maria can guarantee her sales and continue expanding her market share. She lives alone and works hard to get ahead, despite the difficulties of life that she has managed to overcome.
