Ofelia Del Carmen's story

Ofelia del Carmen opens her business at exactly six o'clock in the morning, selling all kinds of clothing as well as fruit. She wraps up her workday at five o'clock in the evening. Her stand is located in a market in León where she does carries out her work to provide for her daughter, whom she loves so much.

The loan will be used to purchase top-quality products like ankle socks, underwear, boxer shorts, tee shirts, aprons, and blouses so that she can satisfy the needs of her customers, thereby increasing her sales; this will help her to improve her quality of life.

She feels grateful because she has taken out loans from Ceprodel previously and they helped her to increase her working capital so that she could buy her products at wholesale, allowing her to earn greater profits. With greater profits, she was able to improve living conditions for herself and her family.
