Shirley's story

Shirley is a 43-year-old mother of three who lives with her husband and children in La Peregrina, La Uruca, Costa Rica. Shirley runs a store out of the garage attached to her house. She has dedicated the past six years to her business where she sells various articles such as party decorations, personal hygiene products, books and photocopying services. Shirley plans to use this loan to increase her working capital. For health reasons, she has not been able to find a steady job, reducing her ability to make contributions to her working capital. This loan will be used to purchase various products to fill Shirley´s store.

Business hours are from 7AM to 8PM. Shirley juggles the tasks of taking care of her children (one of her children is three years old) and running her business. Her main obstacle is a lack of access to working capital. Shirley's goal is to get business back to the way things used to be, a store full of products and clients. This loan will help to address this challenge.
