A loan of $1,200 helped displays, notebooks.

Blanca Azucena's story

Blanca, 52 years old, lives in an urban area named "Orquídeas” because there were many orchids there at the time it was first discovered. For years now she has had a paper shop in order to help with family expenses.

She started her business selling confections. When she needed more money to have her business she started requesting group loans with the D-miro Foundation. With the income she made improvements to the front of her house to accommodate the paper shop. She now works from 7am to 10pm every day. She sells notebooks, pens and paper.

With the money from the loan she wants to purchase paper goods, notebooks and displays to diversify her inventory. In the future she wants to renovate her shop to better serve her clients.
