A loan of $500 helped to buy women's and men's underwear.


Xiomara Elizabeth's story

Xiomara lives in her own house with her mother. Xiomara has been selling women’s and men’s underwear for several years. Her business is located at the market that is close to where she lives. She has a lot of customers. They seek her out because her products are quality, and she has good prices. With the income that she gets from her sales, she manages to cover some of the household expenses.

She is requesting a loan with which she will be able to buy a greater quantity of underwear. She will get different prices, styles, and colors. This way she will have more customers, and she will improve her quality of life and that of her mother.
