A loan of $400 helped buy merchandise for resale.

Blanca Ludivina's story

Blanca started her business 5 years ago after she had to buy shoes for her children and found it difficult to buy them with cash because of the expense. That gave her the idea to buy shoes from catalogs and resell them. She started by offering her products to her neighbors who became her first customers. It's hard to support 4 children on her husband's income because he works as a merchant selling products in the region's temporary markets and his income is variable because of frequent bad weather. That's why Blanca decided to help her husband. In order not to disappoint her son she chose shoe sales, a business that has gone very well.

Blanca needs a US$400 loan, to be repaid in 6 months, to invest and increase sales. With your support, this will be possible.
