Blanca received a loan from Grameen America totaling $3000. She has one vendor space in Elmhurst, Queens that sells a variety of merchandise including hats, dolls, and sports jerseys primarily for soccer. Blanca was sick for a period of time and unable to focus on the progress of her business, but has since recovered and is doing well.
Now, as a thriving member of Grameen America, Blanca was also able to rent a second location in close proximity to the original location where she has been able to hire and pay an employee to work there. This new space also sells t-shirts and a variety of merchandise. Blanca has a running capital of $6000.
