A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a variety of clothing such as blouses, shirts, trousers and clothes for boys and girls.


Maria Lucina's story

María, who is 48 years old, has a partner and two children aged 10 and 19. Because of the need to contribute to the household expenses she set up her business 16 years ago selling clothing. She works full-time. María will buy a variety of clothing such as blouses, shirts, trousers, clothes for boys and girls and other items. This will enable her to stock her business and be prepared for this season when her sales increase. She hopes to make better profits, which she will use to pay off her debts and cover the household expenses. She dreams of having a shop where she can serve her customers better and have more merchandise.
