A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase traditional clothes and basic consumables for a shop.

Paulina's story

Paulina C. L., 45 years old, is married with two children. She has a stall selling goods for daily consumption in the municipal market. She sells candy, toilet paper, carbonated drinks, chewing gum, grains, etc. Her stall is open on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

She is happy because before, she had things, but very little. With the help of FAPE, she supplied her shop and invested in items or grains that people had requested. Today, she is able to buy and sell them. Before, she couldn't because she didn't have enough money. She is requesting this loan so she can use it to purchase more basic consumables as well as traditional clothing to sell.

She supports her children, who are still schoolaged. Her husband is a barber, and she helps him too. Her dream is to have a store to be able to sell on a large scale.
