A loan of $650 helped to buy shoes for students, children and adults.


Flavia Francisca's story

Flavia, a humble merchant from Granada, sells shoes. This is a business she took over entirely when her husband died two years ago. She goes out to sell both inside and outside the city of Granada.

She used her previous loan to buy her inventory of shoes, specifically men's boots, as it was an order placed by her customers from the northern area of the country, where this type of footwear is much requested.

The strongest sales season of the year is approaching, and she needs an inventory of shoes. For this reason she needs credit to buy shoes for students, children and adults.

This will allow her to sell more variety and supply more customers, as her aim is to grow as a merchant and live decently.
