Lourdes Ivon's story

Lourdes is 30 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. She has worked since she was a teenager. Lourdes managed to get a job working as a private employee and worked in her job for a long time. However, as time went by, she realized that the work did not meet all her expectations and she didn't feel satisfied so she decided to set up her own business selling clothing.

Lourdes works alone every day, all day long. She does not rest. She says that you have to work hard to achieve your goals. It has been very difficult for Lourdes to run her business as the streets in her neighborhood aren't paved and the dust dirties her merchandise. She would like to use her loan to buy men's and women's clothing such as blouses, shirts, etc. Lourdes' goal is to grow her business and to have a better location for it.
