María Elena's story

María Elena is the mother of four children and has worked selling miscellaneous goods on the streets of León for 15 years. She has done this to sustain her family and support her household. She begins work at 6am and finishes at 3pm every day, Monday to Sunday.

The loan she is requesting from Ceprodel will be used to buy better quality products like hairclips, hairbands, sole protectors, eye makeup, eyeliners, pocket mirrors, nail polish and lipstick so that she can achieve more sales and earn more money. She would like to achieve her dream of having her own home, as she currently lives with relatives.
