Dina Argelia's story

Dina has decided to ask for a new loan as she saw good results from the previous investment, through which she has been able to keep her business going. This current loan will be used to buy sweets, drinks, cereals etc. to sell in her shop and to buy saws, nails, machetes etc. to increase the stock in her small hardware store.
Thanks to the previous loan she was able to invest in products which she needed to provide stock for her business. This allowed her to increase her sales and her income. She explains that her sales dropped, due to the difficult situation caused by Covid-19, but that this does not mean she will stop fighting to move forwards. Dina's family circle has not changed.

This loan is special because:

It builds opportunity for people older than 60.
