A loan of $400 helped stock up goods.


Nancy's story

6 years ago, Nancy Lucia established a stationary store across the street from her house called "Los Pinos" (The Pines). She created this business thinking about the well being of her children because so that she would not neglect caring for them by working from home. She was recommended by another client who was impressed by the support that this institution offers, so she became interested in requesting a loan to stock up her business. Because the back-to-school season is coming up during which people buy school supplies, she wants to buy more goods to have a variety of school supplies and keep her clients happy with the prices. In this way, Nancy would have more income for her business and be able to help her husband with the family expenses and studies for her small children.
