A loan of $900 helped buy bundles of used clothes.


Marilú's story

Mrs. "Maru" has 4 consecutive years of experience as a retailer of used clothes. She sells at her house and neighboring areas. Her husband is a parking lot watchman without a salary; he earns tips only. She says, "I want to improve my business. I want to buy bundles of clothes in bulk to have more variety and quantity, which will attract more customers. A $900 loan will be enough to obtain this merchandise."
