A loan of $875 helped invest in basic food products for resale.

Danelia Del Carmen's story

Ms. Daniela is a hard working woman. She is 48 years old and for the past 20 years she has run a small home-based grocery store. She has accomplished this with the help of her husband and with financing from Afodenic, which has allowed her to invest in a variety of merchandise.

Her husband is a construction worker. They have five children, three of them are adults and two are students. Her earnings have allowed her to make improvements to their home. She recently had it painted so that it would look nicer and so that customers would be more attracted to her store.

She will invest the money from this loan in basic items, such as: rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, soap, toothpaste, canned sardines, tuna, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, chicken, meats, and milk products in order to satisfy the needs of her customers, as these are the things that they use daily.

She has used her past loans to increase her inventory and sales. She hopes to do so this season, as her sales have been a bit low. She thanks the institution for approving her past requests and for making it possible for her to say in business.
