A loan of $1,000 helped purchase school supplies.


Luisa's story

Luisa is 56 years old, single, and all her children are now adults. She owns her home. She sells groceries from her home, which is strategically located across from the hospital of Saavedra. She will invest her loan in school supplies and thereby expand her line of items for sale beyond groceries. With our institution she has a very good credit history and has also been very responsible with other institutions.
