Griselda started the business to help her husband because, at times, his income doesn't stretch to meeting all of their family's ever-increasing expenses. She started in February 2006 when her mother pushed her to sell jewelry in the days before Valentine's Day, a time when she could more easily move her products. That's how she started, first selling to neighbors and friends, then adding more customers, selling not only jewelry but also a well-known brand of beauty products and even used clothes from time to time.

Griselda is applying for a US$300 loan, to be repaid in 6 months, to buy jewelry so that she will have a better inventory and be able to offer a wider range to her customers.

Translated from Spanish by Jere Wiseman, Kiva Volunteer

Griselda inició el negocio para tener una entrada extra de dinero para ayudar a mi esposo ya que a veces no nos alcanza con lo que gana y nuestras necesidades son cada vez mayores. Comenzó en Febrero del 2006 cuando su mamá se animó a que vendiera joyería ya que se acercaba el día de San Valentín y podría colocar mas fácilmente los productos, fue así como inicio, primero vendiendo entre sus vecinas y amistades, después fue incrementando mas clientes, aparte de que también vendo productos de belleza de reconocida marca y a veces también vendo ropa usada.

Solicita un préstamo por US $300 que pagara en 6 meses para la compra de un lote de joyería que le permitirá tener un mejor surtido para poder ofrecer más variedad a sus clientes
