Leticia
View original language description ↓
In 1999, after having lived in common marriage with her partner, and had two little ones, her partner left them without offering anything to support their children. This is why Leticia decided to start selling shoes through catalogues so she could make money to support her children's expenses. Little by little she has become well known in her neighborhood because she goes door to door offering her products.


However, she has covered the whole neighborhood and she thinks it is necessary to expand even more to be able to get more customers. This is why Leticia is requesting a loan for US $925 to be able to buy a used 1997 van so she can distribute the shoes in towns and neighborhoods near her home. Leticia is determined to pay back the money in 6 months, because she is sure that with this expansion she will be able to increase her income and make sure her two children lack nothing. With your help Leticia will be able to support her two children without needing a man in the family.

En 1999 después de haber vivido en unión libre con su pareja y procreado a dos pequeños, su pareja la abandonó sin brindarle algún apoyo para la manutención se sus hijos. Fue por eso que Leticia decidió comenzar a vender zapatos por catálogo para poder sacar dinero para mantener los gastos de sus dos hijos. Poco a poco se a dado a conocer en su colonia puesto que va casa por casa ofreciendo los productos.



Sin embargo ya recorrió toda la colonia y cree que es necesario expandirse más para poder captar más clientes. Es por eso que Leticia está solicitando un crédito de US $925 para poder comprar una camioneta usada de 1997 para poder distribuir los zapatos en los pueblos y colonias cercanas a su casa. Leticia está dispuesta a pagar el dinero en un plazo de 6 meses puesto que está segura que con esta expansión podrá obtener mayores ingresos y así procurar que a sus dos hijos no les falte nada. Con tu ayuda Leticia podrá sacar adelante a sus dos hijos sin necesitad de un hombre en su familia.
