Santos Adelita's story

Santos Adelita R. G. is a 35 year-old single mother. She has 3 children, all of whom are in school. For more than 10 years, Santos has run a small neighborhood grocery store, which she started at the recommendation of many of her friends. She began with a small table of sweets, bread, crackers, etc., and with time--and the occasional loan--she has been able to expand her small business. Santos is soliciting financing for the purchase of staple grains, candy, instant soups, soap, and detergent. Her dream is to start a small supermarket and improve her home.
