Juana Mercedes's story

Juana is 62 years old and is a clothing vendor. She has made a living from this activity for the past 12 years. She is a native of León. Juana started her first business at the age of 22, when she sold spare parts and accessories for bicycles and motorcycles. She later started selling clothing, which generated more income. These days her business has been growing and improving her living conditions.

Juana needs a loan so she can purchase shirts, trousers, accessories, and women’s undergarments. She expects that this will increase her business selling a variety of clothing and accessories for dressing her customers.
