Patricia Irene's story

Sra. Patricia is 37 years old and has a 16-year-old daughter. She sells cleaning products such as detergents, soaps, dishwashing liquid, and other items. In addition, she sells food products such as canned sardines, tuna, milk, and other staples that are found in the District of Villa del Carmen.

This loan is her first transaction with Emprender. She will use the funds to buy seasonal merchandise since there are very few of these items produced at the end of the year. Sra. Patricia faces challenges in her business, such as offering her products as a traveling vendor since she must go from district to district. She wants to improve her business so that she can have a better quality of life. Patricia will use the profits to continue buying food products and cleaning supplies in order to increase her capital.
