A loan of $1,000 helped purchase notebooks and pens.


Griselda Azucena's story

Griselda, age 45, has a small stationery store in the front section of her house. She lives in a peri-urban zone called Perimetral and has two children ages 15 and 13.

She got started because of her husband's motivation to do so. Before getting married, she used to own a shop, but had to pursue other activities due to a lack of business opportunities. They now both work at their stationery store from 7:00am until 7:00pm, and they are able to spend more time with their children. They sell notebooks for $1.25 and perfumes for $27.00, etc.

In order to keep their business well-stocked, she would like to purchase more notebooks with this loan. In the future, she would like to finish building her house and to start another business.
