Todo Lo Puedo En Cristo Group's story

Five years ago, Sra. Ofelia began her dream of having her own business. She started traveling to the city of Trujillo in northern Peru, where the shoes are cheap and of good quality. By purchasing shoes at low cost, Ofelia was able to sell them in her city at a higher price. This allowed her to generate more income. As a result, her business grew and she was able to use some of her money to buy a vending space at a shopping center in her neighborhood where she currently has a boutique called “Details”. Not only does she sell shoes, but Ofelia also offers all types of products such as clothing and women’s accessories. Her business is complete and helps her to generate revenue so that she can help her children with their studies. This is important to Ofelia because she wants them to become professionals. Her children also help with managing her business.

The money from her loan will be used to continue investing in her store. She plans to buy gifts, clothing, and accessories to offer to her customers. The group that she belongs to is called “Todo Lo Puedo En Cristo” (I Can Do All Things Through Christ), which consists of seven members who are friends and neighbors from the same area.
