Zuleyma is from Mexico. She has 1 child. She needs a loan of $400 to buy groceries and toiletries at wholesale prices .
Zuleyma is 21 years old, is married and she just had a baby girl. They family lives in Ometepec, Guerrero, Mexico. The inhabitants of Ometepec are descendants of a native group called “amuzgos”. The meaning of this word is “place where there are libraries”,
About five years ago, Zuleyma opened a general store right in front of her house. She works all day at her store, which also allows her to care for her baby while she is working. Zuleyma is asking for a loan to buy more merchandises such as milk, sodas, cooking oil, coffee, sugar, cereal, rice, beans, table salt, biscuits, toothpaste, soap at wholesale prices.
With the loan from World Vision, Zuleyma will be able to buy the items that she needs for her store. This will increase her sales and profits. Her store will be a source of income she and her family can depend on. In the future, as her profits allow, Zuleyma says, "I want to continue selling groceries, but I also want to sell office and school supplies and gifts because not far from my house there is a technical school and the students are always looking for a stationery store."
