Heyling De La Concepcion's story

Heyling is a young 24-year-old woman from León. She is married, and is a merchant by trade; she makes a living selling used clothing and has done so for a year. She is currently in her fifth year of university studying psychology. She started her work through relatives that she has abroad who ordered consignment to help her. She was buying clothing in small quantities until setting up her business where she receives help from her husband and a friend. She sells her products in the market because it is a spacious place for trade. She hopes to one day have a much larger shop.

She asks for the loan to buy bundles of used clothing and products for her store like toys, sandals, etc. She believes the loan will help her to be able to offer a new variety of products that will allow her to increase her clientele. Her future plans are to improve her income, increase her products, and open a new shop. For goals, she hopes to next increase her sales by 40% and improve her standard of living.
