Damaris De Jesus's story

Mrs. Damaris de Jesús Gonzáles M., 40, lives in Las Delicias Trojes, El Paraíso.

She has a small grocery store in her home where she sells basic needs items.

The loan will be used to buy merchandise at wholesale to better stock her store because the delivery trucks that deliver products only come through her neighborhood once a week and sometimes she runs out of product and has to wait several days to restock. This leads to lost sales.

Damaris told us that she is very happy because everything is turning out well and that she needs the profits to support her family.
