A loan of $1,000 helped purchase merchandise (clothing and athletic footwear).


Graciela's story

Ms. Graciela C. is 25 years old and is accompanied by Mr. Victor Villalba, who is 26. They used to work in a pawn shop, but they had the goal of working for themselves, so they needed the capital to do so. They saved up a part of their salary for a long time, and around 2006, they began buying and selling merchandise. Thanks to this enterprise, they have a strong client-base. They are requesting this loan in order to purchase more merchandise such as clothing, athletic footwear, etc., keeping in mind that they sell most of their products for credit. They believe that education is the fundamental base for the strengthening, the growth, and the progress of their country.
