Alicia Del Carmen's story

Alicia Del Carmen, 34, is married with two young children. She sells footwear, including shoes, sports shoes, sandals, trainers, bath slippers, flip flops and more. She started her business 7 years ago, initially selling from home, and that's how most of her customers know her.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of goods. At the moment prices are low so if she buys now she can sell in November or December at a profit. She would also like to diversify her business and start selling other kinds of footwear. Her dream has always been to improve her home, and to that purpose she would also like to buy a stall at the local market.
