A loan helped to purchase clothing and beauty products.


Paula Leticia's story

Paula Leticia and her family live in San Mateo, a lovely place where the residents are very humble and hardworking people who work selling seafood.

Paula is an enterprising woman who works hard daily to pay the household expenses. For this, 3 years ago she undertook her business selling clothing and beauty products. She made her sales as a street vendor, but currently makes her sales from home. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her business dropped for biosafety reasons and her income diminished drastically. It is for this that she is now asking for another loan with the goal of reactivating her business again.

She will invest this loan in the purchase of clothing and beauty products. Her dream is for her business to progress and to give her children the best.
