A loan of $1,425 helped to buy arts and crafts.


Dixia Maria Jose's story

Dixa is a 20 year old young single woman who depends on no one. She has a secondary education and graduated with a bachelors degree in Letters and Science. She is a visionary young woman with many plans for the future and she is a bilingual kindergarten teacher. She is also a merchant who buys and sells garden decorations. She decided to start this business because when she teaches other languages to the children, she noticed that they would get excited whenever they would go outside and see these colorful figures that make children and adults feel happier.

Most of her business is out of her home and she doesn't have specific days that she can call good or bad because she sells her merchandise to friends and they in turn bring more friends. One of the major challenges with her business is transporting her products, since she travels every two weeks to buy arts from a distant location and this increases her costs. She has no competition.

She is asking for a loan through the COMIXMUL co-op so she can buy arts and crafts and in this way reduce her transportation costs because she will be able to buy larger quantities and only have to travel every 30-45 days.

Her mother is the only other person involved in her business and she is very grateful for her support. Her greatest dreams are to open a souvenir store in her area because there aren't any and in this way she can expand her variety.
