Angelina's story

Sra. Angelina has been selling school supplies for more than three years. Her business is lacking a variety of merchandise. She is seeking assistance with this loan so that she can invest in the purchase of packages of notebooks, pencils, pens, folders, backpacks, and sheets of paper for photocopying and writing reports.


Angelina wants to assemble school kits to sell since her business is located near a school. She will offer these kits at a good price.


With this loan, Angelina hopes to improve the revenues and profits of her business. This will enable her to improve the quality of life of her family. With the revenue she generates, she will be able to repay the loan. Her husband Sr. Teodoro will take charge of the family expenses with the income he generates selling tacos in different parts of the city.
