A loan of $1,000 helped for rice, canned goods and dairy products.

Katherine Yuliana's story

Katherine, 19, started related to local customers every since her parents had a store when she was a little girl. Because she married very young her parents helped her set up a small store where she lives with her husband and son.

She lives in a periurban zone called Perimetral that is surrounded by a salt marsh. She has few items but the store is stocked so that her customers are satisfied when they come to buy. She is open for business from 7am until 9pm selling rice, dairy products, canned goods and beverages.

To continue well stocked with merchandise she wants to use the loan to buy rice, canned goods, dairy products and beverages. In the future she’d like her store to be the best in the sector so that she can build her house better.
