A loan of $800 helped machine to recharge cell phones.

Leonor Mercedes's story

Leonor is a 62 year old widow. She lives in the rural area of Suburbio. She has a call center.

She started this business in order to have financial stability when her husband died. With her son’s help she was able to buy some telephone booths and have a call center. She now works from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. One of the difficulties that she has with her business is that it is not very safe. She has been robbed on a few occasions.

In order for her business to continue with more success, she wants to use the loan to buy a machine that recharges cell phones. In the future she wants to improve her business and to continue being a close-knit family.
