A loan of $1,600 helped to purchase merchandise wholesale (toys, pottery, clothing, etc.).


Erica María's story

Erica, 24 years old, has a six year old child. She is a hardworking young woman who is very dedicated to what she sets out to do. Two years ago she opened a store where she sells a large variety of merchandise (toys, pottery, clothing, etc.). Although business is good, she needs to buy a good deal of merchandise in order to have a broad inventory so that her customers will feel satisfied about shopping there. She dreams of having a well established and well known business.

With the loan, she will stock her store in time for the upcoming important shopping seasons. They represent increased sales and profits, which will enable her to provide her son with a better education and an enjoyable lifestyle.
