Nathaly Liseth's story

Nathaly is a 20-year-old young woman who is responsible and enterprising. She is the single mother of a 4-year-old little one, who is her motivation to hope and work. She lives with her little one in the home of her mother, who has given her a room where she has established her kitchen and bedroom, barely separated by a curtain.

With the goal of supporting her little one, Nathaly started her business selling clothing, which she does by going to the fairs in the town and the communities. In this way, she succeeds in selling her clothing items and obtains the necessary resources to cover the cost of her child's food, clothing, and education.

She wants to continue developing her business, so she is requesting a loan to buy blouses, children's outfits, pants, wool overalls, Lycra, etc. In this way, she will be able to have a better stock to offer her customers, so she will generate more sales and therefore greater profitability.
