A loan of $575 helped to buy beans, sugar, oil, soap, and liquefied gas.


Nubia Isabel's story

Nubia is a hard-working woman, and she has three children. Her business, which she has had for several years, is a mini-market. It has been her source of income. She has been working in sales for many years.

The most difficult part is being able to maintain equilibrium because sales go down and the products rise. But, thanks to the loans she has been able to maintain her inventory. When she started she was a young woman. She started with her mother, who also had this business.

With this loan she will buy things like basic grains, beans, rice, sugar, oil, and soap. She will also buy liquefied gas, which sells a lot because it is a necessary product that is used everyday in our homes.

During these periods she has not only maintained her business with products, but she has also improved her house. She is happy with these improvements.
