A loan of $425 helped to buy beans and oil.


Dionisia Consuelo's story

Dionisia Consuelo has a business selling basic grains which is located in one of the markets in the city of León. She has been working in this business for 18 years, providing for her family. She has three children in her care. Dionisia leaves home at 5.30am, opens her business at 6.00am and finishes work at 4.00pm. She started her business with her husband's support.

Dionisia will use the loan that she has requested from CEPRODEL to buy beans and oil wholesale. This will enable her to benefit from reduced prices. In turn, she will be able to offer her customers more affordable prices and satisfy their demand. This will make her more income and she will be able to improve her own quality of life as well as that of her family.

Dionisia's dream is for her children to complete degree courses.
