A loan of $850 helped bUYING INVENTORY FOR HER SMALL GENERAL STORE.


Antonia Deyanira's story

Antonia Deyanira is 25 years old and operates a small general store. She has had this business for 3 years now, and the majority of customers are neighbors she knows and people who live far from the city. For this reason, she offers prices that are accessible to her customers.

Antonia began this means of earning a living because she needed to provide all the basic necessities of life for her 3-year-old son. She also enjoys chatting with her customers. And there is competition, which she must confront daily.

Her motive for the loan is to buy basic grains, sweets, soft drinks, bread, cookies, and other things for her store.
