Lucrecia Mercedes's story

Señora Lucrecia Mercedes is 37 years old, and has one son of school age. She knows how to stand out from the crowd, and dedicates her time to selling her craft work. She overcomes the challenges she faces, such as finding means of transport to take her different products to her customers. She started this business because of her grandparents, who taught her this way of life and work. Over time she has invested in it, so that little by little it has come to provide her with good earnings. Her loan will be invested in the purchase of raw materials, as she has various orders to fill. Her dream is to buy a pickup to transport her goods.
