A loan of $300 helped buy clothes and shoes.


Maria Isabel's story

Doña Maria is 46 years old and lives in Villa libertad with her two sons. Her 24 year old son is fianncially independent, and her 19 year old is in school. Maria's husband works as a machine operator at a company in the industrial park. Maria sells clothing, shoes, and soft drinks. She started this business with the liquidation of her former job. This loan will be used to invest in inventory, including clothes and shoes to sell to her clients. Maria sells on credit and layaway, and because of this a loan from Afodenic is very beneficial and will keep her business running. She plans to expand her inventory in order to help her son finish school so that he can be a professional.
