Roxana is from Mexico. She has 1 child. She needs a loan of $475 to buy shoes like sandals and sneakers.
Roxana sells shoes to improve her family's living conditions. She will use a loan from World Vision to enlarge her stock of shoes. She will buy a variety of sneakers and sandals like huaraches, which are hand-woven leather sandals popular in Mexico.
Thanks to her hard work and her husband's support, Roxana's family has never endured severe poverty. Now the loan will help her business continue to expand.
In the future, Roxana would like to open her own shoe store. She wants to display many shoes, and a building would give her the opportunity to reach more customers.
Roxana is twenty-one years old, and she is married to Edilberto, a land worker. They have one daughter, Angelica, who is only two years old. Roxana constantly thinks about her daughter's future and education. By improving her business, Roxana will be able to improve her family's conditions, and she will no longer worry about her daughter's future success.
Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.
