At this year’s “Giving Women Credit” Benefit, which was held on Wednesday, October 19th in NYC, Pro Mujer saluted a very special guest – Luisa Daniel Pérez, a client from Mexico and a 2010 Banamex “Microentrepreneur of the Year.”
Before heading up to the studio to do the interview, José gave us a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Exchange. I first met Luisa in Mexico back in August and knew the trials and tribulations she’s overcome over the years. It was a particularly proud moment seeing a microentrepreneur like Luisa looking out over the trading floor of the world’s largest stock exchange.
During the interview, Luisa talked about how her life has changed as a result of a small loan (US$168) and support helped her follow her dreams:
