Maria Candida's story

María is 56 years old. She lives with her husband, four children, and three grandchildren. Her business consists of selling clothing. It was born of her own enthusiasm and as a way to generate income to contribute to the household expenses. She works from seven in the morning to two-thirty in the afternoon. For now, her business has a large clientele. María will use the loan to stock up the inventory of her business with a variety of garments that will allow her to satisfy her customers. She will buy shorts, blouses, shirts, underwear for both sexes, t-shirts, skirts, pants, etc. She hopes to attract new customers and to increase her sales and income in order to improve her family's quality of life. Her objective is to continue working day after day to improve her financial situation and teach her grandchildren to run a business well.
