Eva Lastenia's story

Eva is an enterprising woman who is dedicated to her business of making piñatas and selling clothes, sandals, and men’s clothing. She has been doing this for seven years.

Eva’s business is in one of the streets in a commercial area of her community. Her main customers are neighbours and people travelling from different communities. She relies on the support of her daughter to sell her products, and they get up very early to sell to customers.

Eva is requesting the loan in order to purchase blouses, dresses, pants, skirts, etc. to stock her business and purchase merchandise for the Christmas season so she can meet the demand of her customers. She will also purchase products for making piñatas. She dreams of expanding her premises and being able to sell bric-a-brac.
