Nora María's story

Nora María has been selling shoes for 11 years, from a locale in one of the markets in the city of Leon. She runs this business so she can take home income to support her family. She has three children, but only one is under her care. She leaves her house in the morning at 5:30am, she opens her shop at 6:00am and finishes work at 4:00pm.
She started her business with capital from her savings and through loans.
The loan she is requesting from CEPRODEL will be used to buy wholesale shoes in order to take advantage of the reduced pricing. This permits her to offer her shoes at more accessible prices to satisfy the demand and to generate more income, which will improve her and her family’s quality of life.
One of Nora’s dreams is for her son to have a professional career.
