A loan of $825 helped purchase merchandise, specifically school supplies.


Lourdes's story

Lourdes is 37 years old, married with four children ages 18, 15, 8 and 6. She sells food in a market in the southern zone. This loan is the second she has taken out from this institution. Lourdes will use the loan to purchase merchandise such as school supplies, which is another entrepreneurial activity that she is taking on, due to the season and that classes have begun nationwide. She wants to take advantage of the demand for these products. Her reason for requesting the loan is that she is lacking resources to make the purchases. Lourdes faces challenges in her business, which are to give good service to her customers and utilize the benefits to increase sales and the well-being of her children. Her wish is to increase her business and to be happy with her children and husband.
