A loan of $750 helped buy a variety of clothes, cosmetics and electric appliances..


's story

Camila lives in the neighborhood of Villa Venezuela. She has been a fighter, getting through life with her sons while being a single mother. She is 56 years old and continues with her business of selling electric appliances, clothing and cosmetics. She has three children who are now independent. They have always helped with her sales, with which she now has 15 years of experience. She started with her own money, to sell clothes door to door. That generated the profits which allowed her to set up the business from her house, although she still occasionally sells in the streets.

Camila's loan will be used as capital to buy electric appliances, clothing and cosmetics, in order to offer her clients a wide variety of products. Her dream has always been to take care of and defend her family, and now that her children are now independent she hopes her family stays united because for Camila, her children are everything.
