Arinda Isabel's story

Arinda, 56 years old, is a woman who is looking for a way to earn a living. She has worked in many informal jobs, owing to the lack of opportunities in the area. Her greatest challenge has been providing for her 2 children despite the adversities that she has had to confront.

She has made a living from her hardware store, an activity that has allowed her to improve her conditions and be able to dream of a better tomorrow. Because of this, she opted to spend all her time and effort on her economic activity.

Arinda finds herself satisfied with the activity that she performs owing to that her income has improved. Because of this, she finds herself requesting a loan that she will invest in products related to construction with the goal of increasing her range and tending to a greater number of customers.

She dreams of improving her family’s quality of life and reaching the point of equilibrium in her business.
