Numancia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped my business continue to grow.
I was born in the Dominican Republic, restless, and outgoing. I was already starting my first ceramic courses at the age of 12 and the pieces were sold in the family business, since then I have continued that entrepreneurial trajectory. I studied fashion design in the city of Santo Domingo and later I was dedicated to the decoration sector, 20 years of them in Spain where I opened two stores, there I discovered the model of sandals that I sell today from the city of New York. Based on a simple concept but seeking comfort as the main objective, it is here where my entrepreneurial conditions have found a great nest to develop a project that at my 50 years of age I consider to be the engine of my working life. I want to add that I would like my passion at this time for this business to serve as an example to other women that age, ethnicity or social status is an impediment to achieving our goals.
