Lorgia Del Carmen's story

Lorgia is a native of León, is married, is the mother of three children, and is a business woman. She began in her business through a tortilla making enterprise, and with time she began diversifying and started a general store. She sells clothing by order, as well as makeup, and that is why she is asking for a loan, which will help her to buy merchandise to sell. She stopped the tortilla making business because of health problems. Today she works full-time in her general store. She is asking for a loan in order to supply the store with basic grains, cleaning products, bread, eggs, fruit, personal care products, cosmetics, diapers, toilet paper, juices, and soft-drinks. She would like to convert her general store, to the greatest extent possible, into an all-purposes shop where her clients can find everything necessary for their homes.
