Kattia
View original language description ↓
Katia had many intentions of being in business, year after year selling clothing door-to-door which unfortunately often did not allow her to spend time with her three children. For this reason, she made the steadfast decision to save money and establish her own store in her home. It’s been a month now since she first opened, and she is proud of her accomplishment. However she has a goal to attract more customers toward which she is putting all her efforts. Her constant motivation is her small children who are of school age. She is a big help with regard to the family’s economic situation, given that her husband’s income often is not enough to cover their living expenses. One of her goals is to improve her store, all while continuing to work buying merchandise. It’s for this reason that she seeks a loan so she can purchase products of a greater variety and that will appeal to her customers. Please help be an integral part of Katia obtaining her loan so she can continue to get ahead.

Katia tuvo muchos intentos de hacer negocio, año tras año estuvo vendiendo prendas de vestir de manera ambulante y muchas veces esto no le permitía estar tiempo con sus 3 hijos, por ello que tomo la firme decisión de ahorrar dinero y establecer una tienda en su propia casa. Ha pasado recién un mes de haberla abierto y ella se siente feliz de haberlo logrado, pero tiene otro reto, la de adquirir clientes, para la cual está poniendo todo su empeño, su motivación constante son sus pequeños que están en edad escolar y ser un poyo muy importante en la economía de su hogar ya que muchas veces el sueldo de su esposo no alcanza. Una de sus metas es poder ampliar su tienda, mientras tanto sigue trabajando en la compra de mercadería, por ello es que solicita un préstamo para adquirir productos variados y atractivos. Sé parte solidaria en el préstamo de Katia para seguir adelante.
