View original language description ↓
Magdalena de Jesús is 23 years old, is married, and has one child. She has a small grocery store in her in-laws’ house, since she doesn’t have her own house. With the loan, she will expand the store’s space and also buy a stock of rice, cookies, salt, sugar, cooking oil, pasta, soft drinks, and other such items. In this way, she will help her husband with the household expenses and also be able to save for their own house, where they can establish their business. She is part of the loan group Merced 4.
