Ana Veronica's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy bread, rice, sugar, cold cuts, drinks, and other products to sell.

Ana Veronica's story

Ana lives with her spouse and two children, ages 7 and 4. She administers her own grocery store business.

She started this business a year ago because in her community there was a shortage of this type of business. Her customers are her neighbors and people who travel along the main street.

She has decided to request a loan to have working capital available and buy bread, rice, sugar, cold cuts, drinks, and other products to sell.

This investment will help her stock-up on the products that has higher demand, which she hopes will generate higher earnings to be able to cover the household needs.

He dreams are to have more inventory in the store and be in a better financial situation that would allow her to cover the household expenses and give her children the opportunity to improve themselves academically.
