A loan of $1,075 helped pay for her daughter's graduation expenses.


Angelica's story

Angelica lives at home with her three daughters. One of them is finishing her bachelor’s degree. Angelica wants pay for her daughter’s graduation expenses. In order to do that she is putting forth much effort working in her bakery-general store, which is in her house.

Her customers are her neighbors in the area. They always return because she waits on them with great congeniality and kindness.

Angelica’s dream is to be able to expand her bakery. She also dreams of being able to have more income to support her daughters.

She qualifies for the loan because of her ability to pay.
