A loan of $850 helped to pay for the purchase of shoes from a catalogue.


Maria Del Carmen's story

Mrs Maria del Carmen Sánchez Torres lives in the Ángel Alvino Corzo town, a very beautiful place with many people. She is in a common-law marriage with Mr. Jose Trinidad Mejía Gómez, with whom she has three children who are under their care: Guadalupe, Gabriela, and the youngest, Jose Arturo. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of shoes from the Andrea y Terra catalogue. She has been doing this for one year and four months, and she tells us that it is going well and she has made a good income. Her husband inspired her to do this work in order to contribute to the household costs.

She saves her income to buy more shoes in order to have enough that her customers can obtain what they most want to buy.

Her greatest wish is that, with the help of God and this loan, she will be able to buy a plot of land to build a bigger home, in order to be able to live more comfortably with her family.
