Agueda Zenaida's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase appliances, shelves, chests of drawers, bedding sets, etc.

Agueda Zenaida's story

Agueda Zenaida sells products from a catalog called La Union La Gran Cadena S.A. Unigranca.

She sells nonperishable products and household appliances like refrigerators, stoves, washing machines, etc. Additional products include televisions, stereos (sound equipment), clothing, shoes (men, women and children), and jewelry (chains, rings, etc.). Agueda Zenaida works at home and by going door to door in various sectors of the city. Her customers buy on credit and pay on a weekly basis.

At first, the social isolation due to various restrictions and fears of spreading the virus kept Agueda Zenaida from working because she could not go out to make her sales. However, she is currently working and following biosecurity protocols.

This loan is for the purchase of appliances, shelves, chests of drawers, sets of sheets, etc.

Agueda Zenaida’s dream is to have her own store and for her family to be very healthy.
