Mercedes Trinidad
The Manuelita Sáenz communal bank is in the beautiful port city of Manta, Manabí province. It's members are enterprising women who seek ways to improve life for their families. Mercedes is happily married and the mother of two unmarried sons. She lives in Manta's 11 de Noviembre neighborhood in her own home. She has equipped an area of her house as a shoe store. She has been in this line of work for 5 years; she loves it and has no plans to go into any other type of work. Her sales are to neighbors and she offers them comfortable payment plans so her customers visit her in her house and choose from the wide variety she offers. To keep her store stocked, she travels periodically to Guayaquil to buy from distributors so that her profits will be better. Her main product is Colombian shoes because they are of high quality and what her customers ask for. When she travels to get more merchandise, her sister stays in charge of the store. Mercedes is asking for new financing to buy casual and sport shoes for this season which is the most important where sales volume is concerned. Her goal is to continue to work with wholesalers in order to get the best profits and continue to expand her business without failing to repay the loan which Fundación Espoir is granting.
