Consuelo's story

Consuelo lives in a place called Tierra Blanca ("White Earth"), which is more well-known as L. Novia del Sol ("Girlfriend of the Sun") since it is one of the hottest places in the state of VeraC., in addition to being a region for raising livestock. Consuelo is 43 years old. She only has a third-graD. education. She has four children, all of whom are already married.

Over a year ago, Consuelo had a restlessness to start her own business. Because she has a lot of friends and acquaintances, her children recommended she sell clothes. Following her kids' advice, Consuelo started her own business.

Consuelo needs a loan to invest in buying clothes (blouses, skirts, pants, shirts, shorts, and dresses) to sell. Consuelo sells clothes door-to-door in her community, and she hopes her earnings are good so she can continue investing in her business so it continues to grow each day.
