Maria Idalia
Sra. Idalia is requesting a loan from us again to stock her small sales venue since the school year is beginning and she wants to be able to acquire new clothes so she can sell them before people are pressed by school expenses. As this is the season, there is a larger influx of people wanting to sell, at least double the number who usually sell in the area.

She has spent more than 6 years engaged in this trade. Formerly she sold blankets and bedclothes, however that business did not earn enough, so she chose to sell second hand clothing, while her husband works in Laredo, Texas as a transfer driver all week and only comes to the city once a week. Together, with their two salaries, they are able to pay for family expenses.

La señora idalia esta solicitando nuevamente un crédito con nosotros para surtir su pequeña venta ya que como se acerca la entrada a las escuelas ella desea poder adquirí nueva ropa para poder vendar antes que la gente esta muy apretada por los gastos escolares y como es esta temporada hay un mayor flujo de personas desea vender al menos el doble de lo que regularmente vende.
Ya tiene mas de 6 años dedicándose al comercio anteriormente se dedicaba a la venta de cobertores y cobijas pero como el negocio ya no daba lo suficiente opto por la venta de ropa de segundo uso, mientras que su esposo trabaja en Laredo Texas como transfer toda la semana y solo viene una vez a la semana a la ciudad así ambos con dos ingresos solventan los gastos de la familia.
