Leidy Marcela's story

Leidy is 33 years old and she is a mother dedicated to her children who are 8 and 11 years old. Ever since the death of her husband, she needed to assume the duties of head of household in order to earn enough money for food and the education of her children. With the goal of earning more money to support her family, Leidy decided to dedicate herself to selling catalog items and later she was able to open a store where she sells beauty products and toiletries. She is asking for this loan because she wants to invest in her business by purchasing more stock in order to increase her sales and income. She dreams of being able to give her children a quality education and to share important moments with her family.
