Pablina's story

Sra. Pablina is 41 years old and married to Sr. Maximino. They have two children, so both of them work tirelessly to provide them everything they need to have a better life.


Sra. Pablina was a saleswoman at a shoe store for many years while her husband worked as a bus driver. However, she came up with the idea to open her own business. With the help of small loans, she continued to sell shoes and now rents three commercial spaces and has four employees. Pablina has several customers. Later on she would like to buy her own shop where she can generate good sales. This would enable her children to attend university since she and her husband were not able to go because they have been working from a young age.


Pablina is requesting this loan so that she can invest in the purchase of shoes, slippers, athletics shoes, and other items. As a result, her business will be well-stocked and she will be able to offer a good variety to her customers.
