A loan of $825 helped to buy seasonal clothing and shoes.


Leonor's story

Leonor is 40 years old and a single mother. She has under her care three children who are studying, two in secondary school and the youngest in primary. The whole family is from the city of Nuevo Laredo.

For more than 6 years, Leonor has been making a living selling new and used clothes in different parts of the city. It is the source of income she has for getting ahead and for being able to give her children what they need.

She is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of summer clothing, since she is running out of it and would like to have a greater selection so that her customers will continue buying from her.

She would like to improve her business and have more inventory, and thus generate more income for her family. A part of the earnings she receives from the sale of clothing and shoes is to pay for the loan.
