Josefina and her multi-service business have had a great impact on many new immigrants in her community. Many clients from Central America use her store’s services--money transfers, calling cards, tickets and cargo--to help them connect with their families back home.

Josefina received a loan from ACCION USA in the past, but unfortunately, like many small business owners she was greatly affected by the sluggish economy. She works full-time at her business and has a second part-time job in the evenings, delivering pizzas in order to cover her personal expenses and keep her business running.

Josefina’s second loan from ACCION USA will help her purchase a professional scale to improve the cargo services she offers. She would also like to implement an aggressive marketing campaign to gain more customers.
