Armida's story

Armida A. D. P. is 47 years old. She works in traveling sales, selling all types of undergarments. Armida works every day in order to earn enough to cover the food and school fees for her 17 year old son and her 7 year old grandson, who depend on her earnings. Armida is the only source of income for her family, and she is asking for a loan to increase her merchandise and expand the variety of her products. In this way she'll be able to obtain better earnings during the dry season, because during the rainy season it is difficult for her to travel the streets. Armida would like to expand her business and increase her earnings.
