A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothing goods.


Edith Fernanda's story

Fernanda is a very happy and persistent girl. She has made a living selling clothes for 4 years. She says that her husband wouldn’t support her initiative to start this business, but Fernanda asked for her first loan from Fodemi and went ahead with the business venture. It is going well for her and her husband now supports her. Fernanda is 25 and she has a 4-year-old son who is now going to school. She is studying through a distance-learning program. She will use the loan to buy clothing goods to display in her business that she leases. Fernana aspires to diversify her products in order to increase her clientele and to be able to cover the cost of her education through this income.
