Bertha Lidia
View original language description ↓
Seventeen years ago, Bertha Lidia started to sell clay items out of her house, but an opportunity came to her to obtain a small location very close to the main bus station in her city. This is why she changed locations and started to sell items like backpacks, toys, and other things. Little by little, she started to gain clients who came by her business to buy crafts and clay items.


However, during this season when many people travel to celebrate the holidays, Bertha doesn't have enough assortment to sell new merchandise. This is why she is requesting a credit of $325 that she is willing to repay in 6 months. With this money, Bertha will be able to purchase merchandise to have something to offer her clients. With your help, Bertha will be able to take good care of her 4 kids.

Hace 17 años que Bertha Lidia comenzó a vender artículos de barro fuera de su casa, sin embargo le llegó la oportunidad de conseguir un pequeño local muy cerca de la central de autobuses en su localidad. Es por es que se cambió de local y comenzó a meter artículos como mochilas, juguetes, entre otras cosas. Y poco a poco se está haciendo de clientes que pasan por su negocio y le compran artesanías y productos de barro.


Sin embargo para esta temporada en que muchos salen de viaje para festejar las fechas Bertha no cuenta con surtido suficiente para poder vender mercancía nueva. Es por eso que está solicitando un crédito de US $325 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 6 meses y con este dinero Bertha podrá comprar mercancía para tener algo que ofrecerle a sus clientes. Con tu ayuda Bertha podrá sacar adelante a sus cuatro hijos.
