A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase three dozen notebooks of each type and size and bond paper to stock the bookstore.


Flor De Marina's story

Flor is 39 years, had the opportunity to attend university and has a degree in business administration. She's married and her husband works in sales. They have two children who are in school and Flor's parents also live with her. She has a paper business across the street from a school and realized she could use it to earn income for her family. Additionally, she has a tailoring business and a store located in her house. Her husband is involved in the store business and her father is involved in the tailoring business. All of the work they do starts daily at 7:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. Flor is requesting this loan from Credicampo to purchase three dozen notebooks of each type and size and bond paper to stock her bookstore. With the rest she will stock the store with sweets and sodas and products that are in higher demand among her customers. This will help her improve her business a lot and avoid losses due to not having what customers are looking for. She hopes, with work and sacrifice, to set up a cyber cafe because across the street from a school is a very good location. In this way she'll obtain more income and be able to pay for her children's college education.
