A loan of $850 helped to buy shoes for men and women.


Landy Graciela's story

Landy is a hardworking, 27-year-old mother. She has a stand to sell shoes in the market in Libertad. She started this business seven years ago selling in the public streets but with urban renewal she was required to lease a stand thus avoiding having her business shut down.

Landy feels happy because even though she’s alone she’s succeeded in moving her son and her business forward; this gives her satisfaction because it turns her into a successful businesswoman. Her greatest fear is becoming ill because he has no help and she’d have to close which would lead to her losing money.

She will use the requested loan to buy 200 women’s sandals, 200 men’s shoes and 300 children’s shoes.
