A loan of $600 helped purchasing of stationery and merchandise.


Angela Norma's story

42 year old Angela lives in a suburb called Paraiso, known for its unpaved streets and environmental degradation. She has a small stationery store. To help with her family's expenses and be able to spend more time with her three children, she started to sell stationery in her home to neighbours.

Building the rear of her house into a shop earned her enough money to get ahead. To keep working in her business, she needs this loan to buy display cabinets, stationery and costume jewellery.

In the future she would like to renovate her home and grow her business.
