A loan helped to buy products, such as oil, rice, sugar, and pasta, among other things, to stock her grocery store and tend to her customers well.

Las Maravillas Group's story

Dina is 40 years old and has a 13-year-old son. Long ago she started working in commerce, buying and selling groceries. She has a stand where she sells oil, rice, milk and sugar, among other groceries.

Dina's greatest wish has always been to have her own locale where she can put her little store. On this occasion she needs a loan to increase her merchandise by buying groceries for her store, to offer a variety of products to her customers in order to serve them well.

Dina considers herself to be an enterprising and hardworking person. She currently belongs to the Las Maravillas communal bank, made up of ten members and led by her colleague and friend Sabrina.

Dina is a single mother and has always liked to get ahead through her effort and dedication. Her biggest dream is to save in order to rent her own store.
