Noemy Francisca's story

Noemy lives with her life partner and their four children. They live in their own adobe and tile home. Mrs. Noemy sells refreshing drinks as a street vendor at social events such as soccer tournaments, town festivals, and others. When there aren't social events she prepares her merchandise and goes out to sell. She now has 10 years of experience and she began with her own financial resources. Her only risk is the fact that the delinquency rate continues to increase, and she could be the victim of an assault.

She has asked for a loan to give her the economic ability to buy soda, water, juice, etc. at wholesale price, and to also buy a new cooler. Right now her cooler is in poor condition, and a new one will allow her to increase her business inventory. She'll also be able to give her clients better service. Noemy hopes that the investment will be of help to have better sales and earnings, as it is with these earnings that she covers family expenses. She will repay the debt acquired.

Mrs. Noemy aspires to make the best of the loan in order to have better economic stability to offer her children.
