Her husband helps her with the store. They have one son. Due to their small income, four years ago they decided to invest their savings and purchase groceries and vegetables to sell to their acquaintances. Little by little their efforts made it possible for them to open a small store on the front of their house. She works from 6:45am to 9pm.

She requests the loan to improve their home (cement, blocks and paint) and so be able to increase the size of the store. In the future, she want to finish her house and purchase more inventory to meet her clients' needs.
