Flor's story

Flor is 45 years old, divorced, and lives with her son, who attends high school. She is currently the head of the household. She is a hardworking and dedicated to achieving her goals. She used to be a member of a women's bank, but she decided to leave and take a break from loans for a while, but this group is known for making their payments.

She started her business about 13 years ago, when she decided to get divorced. She needed to get ahead with her children, so she started to generate income and provide the household necessities, since the financial help she received from the father of her children did not cover all the expenses.

She lives in a community called Maravilla de Roxana (rural). She set up the room in the front of her home to create a grocery store. It is well gated and secure, and she has the necessary business license and tax permits. She works twelve hours at her business, and her mother helps her when she has to go shopping or has personal meetings.

She has vendors who come to her community to leave merchandise and she has no competitors nearby. She sells on credit to banana workers in the area, but the majority of her sales are in cash. She has established customers, and thanks to these sales, she is able to take on this obligation. She is requesting this loan to strengthen her grocery store with merchandise to satisfy her customers. Her goal is to grow to improve her family's quality of life.
