A loan of $300 helped to buy underwear and shoes to stock her business.


Elsy Guadalupe's story

Elsy Guadalupe is 46 years old and is a very hardworking and responsible woman who has her own business. She lives with her life partner and her two children who are studying. Elsy works selling clothes and shoes for women, men and children. Her shop is located in the main street of the village she lives in, which is a street where there is a lot of trade as there are various businesses and street-sellers there, so a large number of people pass through. She would like to be able to increase her sales and thus receive greater profits, which would be of great help to her family. This is why she is requesting a loan with which she can buy larger quantities of underwear, shoes and sandals in different sizes and styles so that she can catch the attention of many more potential customers. She is doing all this in the hope of improving her sales and to earn the necessary money to improve her family's stability and so that they have all that they need.
