Maria Isabel
View original language description ↓
María Isabel started the business because her job as a teacher did not bring in enough money to cover her family's numerous expenses. For this reason she began her own business hoping to generate extra income. The business started eight years ago and it has been doing very well. She first started selling merchandise to people that she knew and they, in turn, recommended her service to others, increasing the total number of clients. Up to this day, she is still sought after by a great number of customers that want to purchase shoes and clothes. They know she makes split-payments deals that makes it easier for them to obtain what they want.


She requests a credit line in the amount of US500.00, that will be paid off in 2 months, to purchase more of the season's merchandise because she has many orders that she has not been able to fulfill.

María Isabel inició el negocio debido a que su trabajo como maestra no le dejaba suficientes ingresos y tiene muchos gastos en su casa, por esa razón se decidió a emprender mi propio negocio para sacar un ingreso extra. Comenzó hace 8 años con el negocio y le ha ido muy bien, en un inicio vendía únicamente a personas conocidas pero después la fueron recomendando con otras personas y su círculo de ventas se fue incrementando. Al día de hoy ya cuenta con un buen volumen de clientes que la buscan para comprar ropa y calzado, como saben que les da algunas facilidades de pago, la gente no tienen gran problema en conseguir lo que andan buscando.


Solicita un crédito por $500 que pagara en 2 meses para conseguir mercancía de temporada porque tiene varios pedidos pendientes que no ha podido surtir por falta de recursos.
