Maria has ten years of experience selling clothing. She began working when she noticed that, despite her husband’s hard work, they could not adequately cover the living expenses for themselves and their two daughters. With $100 in capital she bought clothing from a wholesale distributor. She sells to friends and acquaintances in her community. Her husband also helps her sometimes when he is not working. She is requesting this loan because she wants to diversify her products. She is hoping that with the money she can invest in shoes, sandals and warm weather clothing. Her long term goal is to save enough money to buy a car so she and her husband can travel to rural towns and sell goods.
