Geisel Maria's story

Geisel is an inhabitant of the city of León and is a single mother. She has two children who are 21 and 12 years old. The oldest is at university and the younger is in secondary school. She began her business a year ago with economic support from her ex husband. She bought a shelf, a candy jar, cookies and gum. These were her first products. Little by little she increased her sales and at the same time added more products to form the store that takes care of her family.

She needs a loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, soups, soda, juices, dairy products, oats, canned goods, chicken and toothpaste. They are the products that are in highest demand and of which she needs to have stocked. Her dream is to convert her small store into a variety store where she can offer a variety of products for the home.
