A loan of $900 helped to buy shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses, trousers and underwear.


Dora Del Carmen's story

Dora has a partner and two children, who are in school. Dora lives in a rented house and makes a living selling clothes, a trade she learned on her own as she needed to cover household costs. She works every day from 7am until 5pm and has a stall in one of the main streets in her city. Dora will use this investment to buy shirts, blouses, skirts, dresses, trousers and underwear for men and women. With these items, her business will be stocked up for the Christmas season, when demand is higher. Dora hopes to satisfy her customers' needs, increase sales, and improve her profits, which she will use to pay off her debt on time. Dora dreams of giving her children something that she herself did not have: the opportunity to study and prosper.
