Maria De Lourdes
Lourdes set up her stationary store because she had left her previous job working for a company, and wanted to dedicate herself to an activity that would allow her to care for her parents, who are quite dependent on her in their old age. Although she ran the store off and on for a while, it has been her only business since February 2002. Since then, she has dedicated herself full time to the store and to her parents. In fact, not only has Lourdes opened a second store in another neighbourhood, with her sister and neighbour helping her run it, she has also bought a photocopier and three computers to help turn the first store into a cyber cafe as well as a stationer's. Little by little, her business is growing.
Lourdes needs a loan of $12,000 pesos, which she will pay back in 10 installments, so that she can buy stationary to sell. She is short on capital at the moment. Because of the money she spent on the computers, she does not have enough left over for merchandise.

Lourdes inicio el negocio porqué dejo de trabajar como empleada en una empresa y quería dedicarse a una actividad que le permitiera estar mas al cuidado de sus padres y poder brindarles una mejor atención ya que son personas mayores y están a su cargo, fue por eso que se decidió a poner su negocio de papelería. Comenzó en Febrero de 2002 en la cochera de su casa pero solo duro 3 años y lo cerro porque entro a trabajar como empleada a una empresa y no lo podía atender. Posteriormente lo reinicio en Febrero de 2002 y desde entonces se ha dedicado por completo al negocio y a cuidar de sus padres. Acaba de abrir otra papelería en otra colonia de la ciudad donde le ayuda a su hermana y una vecina, en su papelería acaba de comprar tres computadoras para tener un tipo Caber-café y adquirí también otra copiadora por lo que siente que ha ido progresando poco a poco.

Ella necesita un préstamo por MXN $12,000 que pagara en 10 catorcenas para comprar mercancía y le servirá mucho para capitalizarse y poder comprar papelería ya que con la compra de las computadoras se quedo con poco dinero para invertir en mercancía.
