Damaris Marcia
Damaris, 43, is from Las Banderas district in the outskirts of Teustepe. She’s the mother of four children although she’s not married but does live with her children’s father. She only supports two of her children who are still minors; the other two are independent.

She has had a grocery store for 8 years. She started out just selling candy and cookies; she had two jars filled with candy and two packages of cookies. Her most reliable customers were children who came by daily to visit her store looking for candy, gum and cookies, especially chocolate ones. Gradually she saved up to buy more merchandise and stock more until she turned her business into a grocery store. Her spouse helped her out since the beginning.

Today she sells basic grains, bread, eggs, juices, soft-drinks and cosmetics which are products that are much needed in her community which is why she’s asking for a loan to buy soap, detergent, oats, canned goods, sauces, toothpaste, juices, soft-drinks, snacks, butter and bread. She needs this loan to stock her store with products her customers look for daily to improve sales and make the grocery store grow; she wants to offer more variety with quality products that are needed.
