A loan of $575 helped to buy merchandise.


Mercedes's story

Mercedes has already spent more than 32 years in the city of Nuevo Laredo but she is originally from the city of San Luis Potosí. She is 65 years old and is a hardworking and independent person.
She is requesting a loan to buy goods for the summer season as her clients are requesting them but she doesn't have the capital that she needs to invest in her business.
She wants to make the investment in her business and, as a result, she will have better income as she lives alone because her children have their own families.
With the profits that she makes from her sales, she will make her repayments and help her children financially.
