A loan of $500 helped to buy merchandise.


Bessy Roxana's story

Bessy, 32, is a widow who has two dependent children. Her income comes from selling merchandise, purses, etc. She has had this business for 13 years. Bessy works in a supermarket in the city and sells her products to coworkers who order from her.

She's requesting the loan to buy bags, creams, undergarments, combs, hair accessories, etc.

Bessy hopes this investment will help her increase her income so she can continue supporting her children in their studies and improve their quality of life.

Bessy's dream is for her business to be one of the best known. She also wants to have her own store so she can better serve her customers.
