Patricia's story

Enthusiasm, responsibility, and hard work are what characterize the work that Patricia has been doing for the last three years. She is married and has three small children. Selling shoes represents for her an opportunity to help out with the family’s expenses and to contribute to her children’s education. Paty has managed to increase her number of clients and orders of her products have increased.


In order to cover her customer’s demand, Paty has requested a loan in the amount of $325.00. This loan would be very useful to her because a good season for selling shoes is coming up. She is ready to repay the loan over a period of 3 to 6 months, because she is sure her clients will respond. Patricia sincerely appreciates your support and generosity.
