A loan helped to stock the store with rice, sugar, oil, etc.


Maria Leonor's story

Maria Leonor is a widow and her children are adults. They live in Jipijapa, a place greatly affected by the health emergency caused by Covid-19.

She is a very hard-working woman who is searching for the way to get ahead. She manages this thanks to the loans that allow her to finance her business. Previously, she sold clothing but now she has a grocery store in her home.

It is now better stocked since during the time of the quarantine, she destocked it. Also, various products were already damaged since due to the government measures she kept the business closed. Currently, things are already returning to normal.

This loan is to stock the business with rice, sugar, oil, etc. She hopes to continue counting on being healthy and the help from the loans.

It helps borrowers withstand negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
