A loan helped to buy basic grains and beverages.


Sandra Yanira's story

Mrs. Sandra Yanira Méndez, 45, is married and has two adult daughters. She is a merchant.

Sandra started her business when she was 18 years old and later had a small store in Villanueva for several years but decided to move it into her home where she ran it with help from her family. Her store stayed open for 20 years but had to close due to crime in the area.

She currently sells Mexican products and is requesting funding from Fape and Kiva to invest in basic grains and beverages because she has an opportunity to buy at wholesale and with a discount.
