A loan of $775 helped to buy clothing.

Xiomara's story

Xiomara is known for being a hardworking woman who has been able to manage her capital. She makes a living selling clothing for men, women, and children. She also sells cosmetics, shoes, and other items. She has run this business for more than 10 years, using it to support her household.

She has gotten her three children ahead; they work and attend college. In spite of being a single mother, Xiomara works hard in her job. Every day she rises with the hope that every time her customers arrive, the profit will guarantee her daily sustenance.

She needs to invest in her business, so she's requesting a loan to buy a variety of clothing and footwear to increase her inventory and earn more profit.

Her expenses are more all the time because of her household obligations and the increase in the cost of staples, which she needs to address with loans so as not to affect her working capital. She has had loans and said it's the way to be able to get ahead.
