Santos Ancelma's story

Mrs. Santos Ancelma C. Martínez, 58, lives in Las Delicias Trojes, El Paraíso. She has a small grocery store in her home. She has had it for a short time.

She told us that she wants to buy more items to stock the store and have more inventory available because she has the problem that delivery trucks only come by once a week and this leads to lost sales.

She will use the loan to buy merchandise.

She needs profits to support her family.
