A loan helped to buy and sell new clothes and shoes.

Cristo Vive En Mi Group's story

This group is represented by Yuissa Carolina. She is a hard-working and responsible person. She is a mother of 2 young children and she has her own business. Yuissa Carolina sells new clothes and shoes, which is a very profitable business. The last loan she took out went very well since she was able to invest more and her earnings have increased since then.

Yuissa Carolina's goal is to make a good investment and take advantage of this time at the end of the year since sales increase. She wants to buy merchandise such as women's blouses in different colors and styles, as well as different kinds of women's shoes.

She is very grateful to the Institution and their trust in her, since the loans have been a great help and a blessing for her business and her family.
