A loan of $6,500 helped a member to purchase a variety of shoes.

Las Emprendedoras Group's story

Angelica is 20 years old. She completed high school and is married to Jonathan, who is a laborer. They have a small baby.

Angelica tells us that from a young age in her parent's home, they taught her to work to get ahead in life. Now that she is married and with her baby she wants to look for new opportunities to give her son a better quality of life. So she started to work in her own business selling shoes with her friends. Little by little she has gained more customers. She makes her sales in her free time and what she likes most about the small business is that she has made good friends and met many people.

A loan from VisionFund gives her the opportunity to purchase a variety of shoes in order to continue making sales. In the future she would like her business to progress and to begin selling more products in order to increase her income.
