Hannah Karina
Hannah is married and a merchant in the grocery store business. She is originally from Granada and is a mother of two children aged 4 and 6 who attend school. She started working at the age of 9 with her mother and sister. They would work as street vendors selling enchiladas, fried pastries, etc. and in this way she began to gain experience. She continued working once she got married and then her mother became ill and passed away. She decided to keep working with her sister. With time, she saved enough to open up her own business which is a small grocery store. She has other income since her husband receives severance pay from his job and contributes to the business and household expenses. She also sells Avon cosmetics and clothing to help her income. Her hope is to maintain her business in her home because in this location she has many customers and to continue growing with a variety of products.

She is requesting this loan to buy basic products for the small grocery story such as oats, bread, rice, sugar, coffee, soap, and Mother’s Day products - everything necessary to stock her business with the objective of increasing her sales so as to have greater earnings. Her plans for the future are to request a loan to improve her home’s infrastructure.
