Francisca Alexandra's story

Francisca is 40 years old and has a small store in the front of her house. She lives in a semi-urban area called "Duran," which is characterized by its diminishing ecosystem.

She started off selling fruits on foot outside a school. As she had enough customers, she was able to buy more items to sell and little by little, she increased her income. She decided that the best way to be able to spend time with her family and earn money would be to have her own store. Because of that good decision, she now has her small store where she sells sweets and food items.

In order to provide her children with a better life, she wants to use this loan to buy construction materials to renovate her house. In the future, she would like to finish stocking her business and to improve the construction of her house.
