Dora Ines's story

Dora is a very nice woman who is 51 years old. With a small amount of capital and a display case that her husband made for her, she started up a general store. She decided to do this because she needed to support her family financially. She is the mother of 3 children. Thanks to her business, she was able to pay for their education, and now they have their own families. In the photo she is standing by the shelves that her husband made, a reminder of those legendary days. Dora faces a number of difficulties, including the competition, the lack of public safety in her area, and the high costs of consumer staples. However, in spite of these, she perseveres and keeps the business running, because at her age it is very difficult to get work and she must hold onto what she has and try to improve it. Dora is requesting a loan to stock up on groceries and vegetables. This will allow her to increase her sales, making her business sustainable by giving her a month of inventory.
