Ivania Patricia's story

Ms. Ivania Patricia has a retail shop selling basic staples and other popular products located in one of the markets of Leon Department which she has done for 23 years. She leaves home at 7 a.m. and opens for business at 7:30 a.m., closing at 5 p.m. She does this work to support her family.

Ms. Ivania Patricia will use this loan to purchase basic staples wholesale, such as rice, beans, sugar and oil, which will allow her to sell them at lower prices and so reach a larger number of customers.

Ms. Ivania is seeking a loan from Ceprodel to increase her inventory with higher quality products and achieve better sales by which to make more profits. Thus she and her family may have a better quality of life. She dreams that her three daughters may receive professional education and training.
