A loan helped to buy rice, sugar, beans, pasta, vegetable oil, alcoholic beverages, etc. to increase her stock levels.


Eva's story

She is a young woman. She is 23 years old and finished high school. She is the mother of two underage children who do not study yet. She and her husband, who is a teacher, own a house. He taught her to manage her store, located at home.

This will be her fourth loan. With the previous ones, she expanded her business, and built a house to rent it out. She plans to continue down the same road.

She is planning to buy different products, such as rice, sugar, beans, pasta, vegetable oil, beverages, alcoholic beverages, etc. to increase her stock levels.

Her biggest dream is to finish the houses she is building, and with the profits from her business, buy a larger vehicle than the one the family already has, in order to transport her products more easily.

She says that she feels that she faces many difficulties, and has struggled to achieve her goals, despite the high cost of living.
