Valeria's story

Valeria is taking a loan of $800.00 to improve her business.

She is running a mini-shop that helps her to generate income for her family. She will use the loan to buy stocks to keep in her store, such as shorts, short sleeved and long sleeved shirts, and also clothes for the children to church.

She opened her second hand a year ago with her own working capital of $600.00. She is a hard-working woman and she hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
