Xiomara Mercedes
Xiomara Mercedes, 41, has worked with Fundación León 2000 for a long time, and this is not the first time she has requested a loan. Her business is selling general merchandise, which she has been doing more than 11 years, a business that has provided her with the experience of working hard and managing her money so she can buy the raw materials she needs. She plans to continue with her business, since she has invested a lot of hard work and does not want to lose it. This is why she is requesting the help of Fundación León 2000 with the goal of purchasing additional stock for her business. She would like to establish a little shop in her home.
