A loan of $1,500 helped to buy vegetables, fruit and meat.


Lidia Del Carmen's story

48-year old Lidia is a native of León and a businesswoman. She is a single mother with three children. She sells vegetables, fruit, and meat in the neighborhoods around her house. The business has allowed her to help her family get ahead. The money she has received from loans has been key in this progress.

Now Lidia is seeking a loan to buy meat to resell, and also to buy more fruit and vegetables. Her goal is to gradually add more stock so she has new items to offer to her customers.
