María Isabel's story

At 58 years of age María Isabel is a tireless fighter. She has run her own business for several years now selling all kinds of products such as clothes, perfumes, accessories, bags and many other things. She does this work as lacking gainful employment she needed to find a source of income. She started selling by order and now keeps an inventory and a variety of products in her home.

María Isabel works during the day and has the advantage of being able to count on her youngest daughter's help which means that she can simlultaneously manage her own time and spend time with her family. Maria dreams of having a very large store with an outreach and recognition in the entire city. However, nevertheless, she currently needs to buy display cabinets and counters to better display her products, making it more convenient for her customers, thus selling more and increasing her income. This is why she is currently asking for a loan with which to make this investment and thus also improve her quality of life.
