Three years ago, Leonor began selling clothes to her relatives,since her income was not enough to cover her children’s expenses being that she is a single mother. That was how she got a taste of the business and was convinced that it left her sufficient revenue. Currently, she works in this business full-time, and thanks to her enthusiasm, she has made a name for herself in her community.

However, her clients request more and more things each day, which is why Leonor is requesting a loan for $525, which she is willing to repay in a 4-month term. With this money, Leonor will be able to purchase more clothing and therefore give her business a boost. With your help, Leonor will be able to help her children prosper so that they may one day go to college.

Hace tres años que Leonor comenzó a vender ropa a sus familiares. Puesto que con lo que ganaba como obrera no era suficiente para pagar los gastos de sus hijos ya que es madre soltera. Y fue así como probó un poco este negocio y se convenció que si dejaba ganancias suficientes. Actualmente ya se dedica por completo a este negocio y gracias a su entusiasmo a logrado darse a conocer en su comunidad.

Sin embargo sus clientes cada vez le van pidiendo más y más cosas. Es por eso que Leonor está solicitando un crédito de US $525 que está dispuesta a pagarlos en un plazo de 4 meses y con este dinero Leonor podrá comprar más ropa para así darle más vida a su negocio. Con tu ayuda Leonor podrá sacar adelante a sus hijos para que estudien una carrera universitaria.
