A loan of $250 helped to buy fruit.


Isabel Crisitina's story

Isabel is a humble merchant. She is 58 years old and lives in the city of León. She is the single mother of one son. She is from a very humble background and was raised to work from the time she was very small, selling in the streets. She started selling plastic items as a street vendor, and then worked selling personal hygiene products. For the last 5 years she has sold fruit, cookies and snacks. She would like to have a bigger spot to sell fruit in the market where she can sell wholesale. That is one of her biggest wishes. Today she needs the loan to buy fruit in season. This loan will allow her to stock her business and add more products such as snacks and candies to sell.
