Irma  Yolanda
View original language description ↓
Irma began her business selling out her garage because her husband's pension was no longer enough to cover their expenses. She spent ten years selling clothing outside her home to family and neighbors, then she decided to set up in the flea market selling novelty items as well. When it rains, though, her merchandise gets wet, and it's particularly difficult on hot days when the temperature in the sun can reach upwards of 105 degrees Fahrenheit. That's why she wants to buy and set up an awning, so she and her customers are more comfortable and she can provide them with better service.


She needs a loan for US $500 that she will repay in 6 months to buy an awning for her business. With your help, she will come out ahead.

Irma inicio su negocio vendiendo en la cochera de su casa porque no completaban a pagar sus gastos con la pensión de su esposo. Primero duro 10 años vendiendo ropa afuera de su casa a sus vecinos y familiares, luego se decidió instalarse en la pulga vendiendo aemas novedades, pero cuando llueve se le moja la mercancía, y los días de calor es muy pesado estar a mas de 40 grados centígrados con el sol por eso quiere mandar hacer un toldo, para estar mas cómoda y ofrecerle un mejor servicio a sus clientes.


Ella necesita un préstamo por US $500 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar un toldo para su negocio. Con tu apoyo ella saldrá adelante.
