Clerida Yaneth's story

Mrs. Clerida Yaneth A. A., age 43, sells groceries and has named her business “The Preferred”. She told us that at the start of her business was very difficult due to the few opportunities available, yet with the passage of time, opportunities arose of which she took full advantage and since then, her business has moved forward. Year after year the grocery store has grown slowly but surely. She also told us that sales are not very good for many reasons in her country. In the Nacaome area unemployment is high, but she says it must improve slowly to move forward.

The loan would be used to buy more merchandise and therefore offer more variety. Her dream is to make her grocery store a small super-market in order to provide a greater variety of products to customers, and thanks to such customers, move forward herself.
