Gracia
View original language description ↓
Gracia, 42, is originally from Tampico [in the northeastern Mexican state of] Tamaulipas. She's married and has three children, a 23-year-old and 21-year-old twins. Her husband is a construction worker. Graciela started her business two years ago so her children could continue their education. She initially sold costume jewelry, then added second-hand clothing and now she's established in the "mercados rodantes"--a kind of temporary street market--where her sales improve with each passing day. Graciela's strong character has helped her to provide a good service to her customers and to build her business.


Graciela is now asking for a US$275 loan that she promises to repay in 4 months. She'll use it to buy more merchandise to cover demand from her customers. Now is the time to help those most in need. Make the decision to help this family and contribute to the development of her business. Thanks very much.
