Ingrid's story

Ingrid is a 26 year-old widow, and is the mother of a 4 year-old son named Miguel. She and her son live with her in-laws, and what she wants most of all is to have a better income so that she can have economic stability for her beloved son. Even at her young age, Ingrid has gone through a lot of suffering; a year ago her husband died of natural causes. Since then Ingrid has learned to work very hard to care for her son. She is a dentist who works in the Health Center of Santa Rosa, but on the weekends she sells clothing. Through her efforts and the earnings she obtains, she is trying to adequately feed and educate her child. She is grateful to the lenders for the confidence they placed in her, because thanks to their support she was able to buy merchandise in the form of clothing. She mentions that she already paid off the prior loan, and so she is participating in another credit cycle. She has plans to continue to grow her business and to save her earnings, since she wants to open her own dental office in the city of Santa Rosa. This is her second loan, and beforehand she asks for the help of all of you so that she can continue to work. With the loan she requests, she will buy a variety of summer clothing.
