A loan of $525 helped to buy clothing, shoes and home goods.


Filena's story

Doña Filena is 51 years old and lives in the Villa Reconciliación Sur neighborhood. She is married and her husband owns a taxi, which he drives himself, to help with household expenses. They have 4 children, all are adults and work on their own. Doña Filena sells products by catalog, specifically cosmetics. She has been doing this for 5 years and started the business with the help of her husband. Her wish is to be able to expand this small business. She is requesting a loan to invest in her business and buy clothing, shoes and home goods to offer to her customers so she can make more profit, expand the business and help out with expenses.
