A loan of $500 helped to buy a pick up truck.


Juana Mercedes's story

Señora Juana Mercedes R. R. lives in the neighbourhood of Waspan Norte. She is 41 years old and lives with her life partner who is a driver at the Oriental Market. She has a daughter who is a wonderful help in her business selling fruit and vegetables on the seashore from a rented pickup.

Juana wants a loan so that she can buy a small pickup. She has had problems with the owner of the rented vehicle and so has decided to buy her own. It will give her greater mobility and decision-making capacity, ensuring more sales and guaranteeing an improvement in her standard of living.
