She wants to use the economic help to buy better-quality clothing, in order to give the best products to her clients for more profits to help her family. Maria is requesting a World Vision microloan to buy more clothes for the business she began a year ago. She explains it has been a good investment with good earnings.

She can then be prepared next February when her customers will want to purchase new clothing for the community's religious celebration.
