Vicenta Dolores's story
This is where Vicenta lives. She is a 37-year-old married mother of two, ages 20 and 15. The oldest is attending the university while the youngest is still in school. Vicenta's husband is a small business owner.
With the intention of helping her husband, she is requesting this loan to use it in his business. He buys and sells home decor and ceramics for a living. Every week, he travels to various mountain towns, where he has many customers, to sell his products. He has been in business for over 20 years, and thus, he has been able to help his family get ahead. He buys his products from artisans in the area.
Vicenta will use this loan to purchase various types of handicrafts so that her husband can sell them. She has been with the bank for 4 years, and she likes it because she is able to help out her husband with these loans.
Her dream is to open up a shop in her home to sell her products.
