Jina Pelly's story

The canton Jipijapa is known as the empress of coffee, principally its world-known Arabic variant. Its typical local food consists of corn tortilla, minced beef pie, corn flower dishes, fish balls, baked beef and pork, and a typical dish from the region, called "greñoso", which is made from corn, peanuts, local spices, and chicken, beef or pork.

Jina has an adult child who is independent. They live in their own house. Jina has a grocery store where she sells basic staple goods like rice, sugar, oils, water, soft drinks, etc. She works from 9AM to 6 PM. She has had this store for 16 years.

With this new loan she will buy rice, sugar, tuna, oils, noodles, detergent, etc. She likes the loans because her business has grown.
Her dream is to have a bigger store with more goods.
