A loan of $750 helped purchase two bales of clothing.

Marlene Del Socorro's story

Marlene is 38 years old and lives in the La Primavera neighborhood of Managua. She has two children studying in secondary school, and her husband works as an automotive electrician. With their savings, she has been able to run a small grocery store for the past four years. With this loan, she would like to buy two bales of used clothing, so she can sell good, beautiful clothes at a reasonable price. She hopes this will bring in better earnings. Her future plan is to have a clothing store, where she will sell a variety that will satisfy her customers as well as attract new ones.
