Tomasa's story

Tomasa is the single mother of three minor children who are still in the primary educational level at school. She lives in the Boquerón II neighborhood with her children.

Tomasa has a well stocked grocery store, and it is the only one in the neighborhood.

She started several years ago with very little merchandise. She increased it little by little as the years went by. She now has a well stocked grocery store with good customers. It is the only grocery store to be found in her community.

She is a hard-working person, and she is devoted to her children. The loan was for products to sell like sugar, pastas, oils, and others.
