A loan helped to purchase: candy, chocolates, potato chips, bananas, yogurt, gelatins, juices, and gum, among others.


Martha Ligia's story

Ligia is a somewhat older woman but with a much intent to continue working. She feels very thankful for the help received since thus she has managed to get the resources necessary to cover the needs that she has had being mother and father to her children and some of her grandchildren.

She always provides for them with her undertaking that allows her to pay the rent on her room, for food, clothing, and health. Ligia has always dreamed of having her own home and now that her children are independent, she can begin to make her dream a reality.

It is because of this that she is requesting help to purchase: candy, chocolates, potato chips, bananas, yogurt, gelatins, juices, and gum, among others. Thus, she hopes to obtain greater sales and therefore greater profitability which will allow her to fulfill her dream.
