Sabina began selling flowers from a shopping cart in her neighborhood to supplement income from a low-wage factory job. With her $1,500 micro-loan she bought cut flowers and party supplies for Quinceañeras. Ambitious to build her business, Sabina took out subsequent loans and grew her savings until she could purchase a commercial refrigerator. Now she buys flowers in bulk - saving time and money. Sabina’s next steps are a delivery van and a second store. From shopping cart to store-front Sabina is a business owner, a job creator and family provider.
