A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a printer.


Liset Magali's story

Liset, 28, has two children, ages 1 and 5. She makes a living doing all kinds of printing in her print shop located in the 16 de Julio area.

This loan is her first sequence with the institution. Liset is going to use this loan to buy a printer for her business. She requesting the loan because she wants to update her work equipment to have good-quality printing. She needs it a lot but wasn't able to buy it because she didn't have the cash.

The challenge Liset faces in her business is competition, because there are many print shops in the area. She's going to use the profits to continue buying equipment and materials she needs.

Her desire is to have a photography studio with all the modern equipment to give her customers quality service.
