A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bulk footwear.

Grisel Rocio's story

Grisel is a businesswoman in shoe sales. She is 41 years old with two children and lives with her partner of 20 years. She says she never married because "with work and children there is no time for anything." She loves her family and is always attentive that no one ever is lacking anything.

Her day begins at 5:30 am; she gets up and prepares lunch for the entire family and also leaves everything ready for breakfast. At 7:30 am she is directed to her place of work, accompanied by her one year old baby.

Grisel dreams of having her own house and thinks that within a couple of years she will accomplish it. She is looking for a better future for her family and understands that expanding her business will accomplish improving her income. She says that she wants to buy more and new merchandise because the competition is high.

It is to help her family that Grisel is requesting the loan to buy bulk shoes.
