Brenda Lorena
View original language description ↓
My name is Brenda Lorena Girón Gómez and I am 32 years old. I’m originally from the capital city, and it has been eight years since I started a business selling of slushies from my doorstep. This enterprise went very well for me and I was able to save money, as well as obtain a loan from the Shalom bank which allowed me to buy new children’s clothing that I sell from my home. I also sell my merchandise by foot on the local streets, as well as used clothing which has also been a successful endeavor for me. Although my earnings have improved, I still want to increase my sales. This requires obtaining additional merchandise, and is the reason why I am seeking new capital.
