Rufina's story

Rufina D. G. is 50 years old and is married to Diosnel Arrua, who works as a construction worker. They have 2 children, one who is 30 and a mathematics teacher, and one who is 15 and enrolled in secondary school. Rufina has operated a pantry out of her home since 1990, where she sells groceries and haberdashery. Rufina would use her loan to purchase goods wholesale, such as sugar, noodles, rice – which would decrease the cost and increase her profits. She would also be able to have a greater variety of merchandise to offer her customers.
