Lupe’s story

My name is Guadalupe Diaz and I am the mother of 5 kids: 3 boys and 2 girls. 10 years ago I left Mexico, leaving behind my family and my kids.

Since I was a kid I always had an entrepreneurial spirit and I loved working. In my family we didn’t have money to afford studying and the situation got even worse when my father passed away. Therefore me, my brothers and sisters always had to work to sustain the family since we were kids.

15 years ago, when I was 23, I was diagnosed with cysts and fibromas and I was told that my womb should have been removed. I learned about Omnilife and I took some of their products and I was healed. I began selling some of their products afterwards. 

This loan is special because:

It supports a woman entrepreneur providing natural health products to her Oakland community.

Business Description

I started Mis Suenos in Oakland three years ago. I have since expanded my business to sell other natural health products and other consumer products to help people in my community.

I sell healthy teas and fruit and vegetable drinks to the public and I also sell tupperware, shampoos and makeup products. 

What is the purpose of this loan?

This loan will allow me to expand my shop to make the experience better for my clients.

Ideally I would like to be able to afford a bigger place to host more customers and in addition I would like to add:

– A variety of smoothies, coffee, teas and juices – A big refrigerator to provide fresh beverages to my customers – A table and chairs – A coffee machine for clients
