Marcela is a client of Kubo Financiero, and this is her story:

“Hi, my name is Marcela, but I like to be called “Susu”. I live in my own house with my daughter. She helps me in my business when I need it.

I am 67 years old, and 15 years ago I set up a small store in my house. I sell groceries, soft drinks, and all types of food. I also sell health products like vitamins and food supplements.

I am requesting this loan in order to be able to stock my business more and to have more merchandise to sell. This way I will have more products like Omnilife and Lebasi for my customers.

What I have been able to achieve with my business is to make improvements to my house. Before there was metal sheeting, and I managed to put in the tile. I want to continue improving my house and making my business grow.”

Marcela es clienta de Kubo Financiero y esta es su historia
Hola me llamo Marcela pero me gusta que me digan “Susu” y vivo en casa propia con mi hija que me ayuda en mi negocio cuando lo necesito.
Tengo 67 años, desde hace 15 años puse una tiendita que está ubicada en mi domicilio; ahí vendo abarrotes, refrescos y todo tipo de alimentos. Además vendo productos para la salud como vitaminas y suplementos alimenticios.
Pido este préstamo para poder surtir más mi negocio y tener más mercancía que ofrecer, así como tener más productos de Omnilife y Lebasi para mis clientes.
Lo que he podido lograr con mi negocio es ir haciendo mejoras a mi casa, antes era de lámina y logre poner la loza. Quiero seguir mejorando mi casa y hacer crecer mi negocio.
