Maria Luisa
View original language description ↓
Maria Luisa is a single mother of a four year old son. She needed to increase her income without neglecting her child who was very small. She did not have a job that provided for childcare and could not pay a private party nor had anyone that could take care of him. That is when she started to sell lingerie on her own. She started in 2004. Her friend was doing the same and shared with her the information of the stores where she could purchase inventory in Guadalajara. She started her business selling to her neighbors. Thanks to this she has been able to cover the costs of her little one.


She now needs financial help of USD $575 which she will repay in six months, to update her inventory and purchase merchandise of the season. With your help Luisa will be able to give her son a better quality of life.
