Beatriz started her business because she very much likes sales and it allows her to meet many people besides having an income. She started approximately eight years ago and began selling novelty items such as tiaras, necklaces, glasses, belts and women’s handbags. Her sister-in-law invited her to go on trips to Moroleón, Villa Hidalgo and León, Guanajuato, where they can buy merchandise at better prices and because of that her business started growing. The prices were more accesable and most of the merchandise that she would bring was from orders and purchased on credit and that helped her to have a better clientelle.

She is requesting a loan for US$975, which she plans to repay in six months, to construct a room to be able to increase the size of the business and offer more convenience for her clients in addition to better service since they will be able to see and choose what garments they need. She will also go again to buy merchandise. With your help, this will be possible.

Beatriz inició el negocio porque le gusta mucho las ventas, ya que le permiten conoce mucha gente y además tener un ingreso. Comenzó hace aproximadamente 8 años inicio vendiendo novedades como diademas, collares, lentes, cintos, bolsas de dama y después la invito una cuñada a ir a los viajes a Moroleón, Villa Hidalgo y León, Guanajuato, donde pueden conseguir mercancía a mejores precios, y fue con eso que su negocio fue creciendo por que los precios eran accesibles y la mercancía que traía era la mayoría por pedidos y en pagos eso hacia que tuviera mayor clientela

Ella solicita un préstamo por US $975 que pagara en 6 meses para construir un cuarto y poder ampliar el negocio, tener más comodidad para los clientes, así como ofrecer un mejor servio ya que podrán ver y elegir las prendas que ellos necesiten mas cómodamente. Además de ir de nuevo a comprar mercancía. Con tu apoyo esto será posible.
