A loan of $600 helped to buy merchandise such as clothing, shoes, and cosmetics in advance of the Christmas season to sell in her business.

Juana De La Trinidad's story

Juana is a single mother. She has three children, who live independently. She lives in the city of León, selling clothing and shoes. She was 25 years old when she made her first sales. She worked in a hospital and her customers were her coworkers to whom she sold shoes. Since then she has been working in commerce, also selling cosmetics.

The Christmas season is approaching and she wants to buy merchandise of clothing, shoes and cosmetics to sell and to take advantage of prices that are low since they climb during December.

Her customers like the variety of merchandise that she offers. One of her dreams is to improve the infrastructure of her home in order to put in a mini-store of clothing, shoes and cosmetics where her clients feel comfortable buying their merchandise.
