Blanca's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy quintals of rice, sugar, flour, among other products.
Blanca lives together with her husband in the Nuevo Amanecer neighborhood. She is 70 years old, and has a general store located in her daughter's house. This business is the only source of income for her and her husband since due to Covid and other health problems, her husband stopped his job of making and selling sponge cakes. For this reason, Blanca wishes to obtain financing that will allow her to improve her store by supplying various products for daily consumption. This will allow her to buy at a better price so that more earnings stay with her, since the distributors that visit her store turn over products at a higher price. Blanca and her husband have been an exemplary marriage, and only hope to be healthy and continue caring for their store well.
