A loan of $400 helped working capital.

Salvadora Adelina's story

Salvadora Adelina is 60 years old, and she is a tough but humble and hard-working woman. Her business is the sale of general merchandise. More than 15 years ago, she started this business in order to provide for her children. Sometimes she has days of good sales and sometimes her goods don't sell as well, but even when she doesn't sell large quantities she sells enough to allow her family to eat. This loan she is seeking is for working capital, which she will use for the purchase of concrete blocks, stone cement, and sand. Salvadora's dream is for her children to continue this business, which is her livelihood.
