A loan helped to buy condiments to sell.

Juntas Aprendemos Group's story

Shirley started working at a very young age to help with family expenses because her parents had limited resources. She started her business of selling condiments in small quantities by traveling to different fairs in the city. She currently studies at night and makes sales during the day to pay for her studies and continue helping her family. Despite the difficult situation she has had to live through because of the pandemic, she has continued to strive to achieve her dream of becoming a professional.

She is now requesting a loan to buy various condiments in burlap bags to sell. She will then bag the condiments and distribute them at different sales stalls to increase her income and improve her living conditions.
