Macrina is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $1,600 to purchase clothes.
Macrina Cisneros Noyola lives in the community of Montecillos, Guerrero. She is 59 years old and is married to Mr. Eduardo. They have 3 children - Eligio, Yesenia and Luis Antonio. All of them are married and are no longer in school.
Macrina has a business selling clothes. She decided to start this business, because she wanted to find a way to support her husband with the expenses of her house and to improve the quality of their lives. With a loan from World Vision Macrina will invest in the purchase of more clothes, such as: trousers, skirts, shorts, shirts, t-shirts, blouses and underclothes.
Previously she had economic problems because she did not have enough capital to invest again in her business. So she lost some customers and the sales decreased as well as her profits.
She is very sure that this loan will benefit her family and she will get a better quality of life. She will be able to support her children if they have any problems.
Macrina's desire is to be successful in her business and to build a clothes store. She will increase her sales and grow it more to receive a better income. She wants to save some money to build a kitchen for her home. She knows she will continue investing in her business.
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.
Residents of the community of Cuajinicuilapa are primarily a mix of native Mexicans and Africans, who originally arrived with the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. The region’s close proximity to the coast enables residents to participate in a wide range of economic activities, including commerce, agriculture, and fishing.
In Cuajinicuilapa, World Vision is working to improve healthcare and has conducted HIV- and AIDS-awareness campaigns, formed support groups, provided testing, and trained community members to care for those who are affected by the disease. We have also emphasized the importance of education to parents and trained community leaders to provide tutoring to students, helping them improve academic performance.
