Julia
View original language description ↓
Julia is married and has 2 children: Gonzalo, a 20-year-old who studies at the technical college in the city of Madero, and Lourdes, a 5-year-old preschool student. She started the business because she wished to help her husband with the household expenses and because she wanted to make her own money and become independent. In retail, she was able to find a pleasant way of life.


She started back in February of 2004, when a promoter invited her to help her sell shoes by catalogue. Since she was successful, she decided to become independent in April of 2006, thus being able to keep all her profits, not just a percentage.


She needs a loan of $300.00 USD, which she will repay in 4 months, in order to purchase more merchandise and fill her customers’ orders. With your help, this will be possible.
