A loan of $800 helps to buy more basic products for sale in her store.


Esmeralda Saraí's story

Esmeralda is thirty-four years old. She lives with her partner, who works in construction. She has two children, of whom only the older one goes to school.

Esmeralda has a store and she’s been in this business for three years. She has the business in her house and her partner is also involved in the work.

The loan will be used to purchase more basic products for sale in the store.

Her dream is to improve her business and provide a better quality of life to her family.

This loan is special because:

It enables vulnerable women to start and grow their own business.
