A loan of $1,000 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Marisol Del Carmen's story

Marisol, 28, is from the city of León and is mother of three children. She’s a merchant by profession. She sells groceries and traditional sweets. With much effort and sacrifice she succeeded in establishing her business. Her husband helps her tend to the store. She sells her goods at home since it’s very popular with passers-by which leads to higher sales and demand.

Marisol’s great dream is to turn her grocery store into a variety store offering a wide variety of goods to her customers. She’s asking for financing to buy such things as coffee, rice, soap, oil, beans, snacks, etc. to increase inventory and earn higher income. She figures that the loan will be of much help in that it will improve her quality of life.
