Lesbia Mercedes's story

Lesbia Mercedes R. Carrión is 45 years old and a married woman. She has one child left at home. Her business is buying and selling new clothing. She has been doing this for more than ten years.

She is a very hardworking woman and she has been working since she was very young. It was her mother that taught her the business and is very thankful that the only way of life she knows is working hard for her modest income. In spite of facing challenges like keeping her business running in these difficult times she continues to work.

She needs the loan in order to buy shirts, pants, and vests.
