A loan of $800 helped to buy clothing and cosmetics.

Lorgia Del Carmen's story

Mrs. Lorgia, age 55, lives in Leon. She is a merchant and sells tortillas, clothing and cosmetics from her home. She is married with three children. She started her business when she was 29, just making tortillas--but she needed to generate more income to help her husband, so she invested in cosmetics and clothing. Her husband has helped her from the beginning. She has now sold clothing and cosmetics for five years, and this has been very profitable for her. She needs this loan to buy clothing and cosmetics in order to take advantage of the Christmas season. She wants to have a store from which to sell her clothing and cosmetics.
