A loan of $1,200 helped to increase her working capital.

Beatriz's story

Mrs Beatriz F. C. has one child who she is educating alone because she is a single mother. Her child's father left two years ago and since then she has been selling groceries in a local market in Ivirgarzama (Playa de Autos market). This girl is very young, hard-working and devoted to her child. From Monday to Friday she works as a waitress in a restaurant where she is well treated. At weekends she works on her stall in the local market. She is gradually lifting herself up so that she can have a better life for herself and her child.

This is the first time that Beatriz has had a loan from our institution. She will use it to buy merchandise so that she can have a better variety of products to offer her customers. This will allow her to improve her income and thereby improve her quality of life.
