Felipa María Eva's story

Felipa María Eva F. Vda. D. L. is 73 years old and lives in the San Salvador department. She lives alone owing to the fact that she was widowed a few years ago, and for this reason she works very hard to be able to sustain her business and in this way have everything she needs to have a dignified life. With the desire to live better, 5 1/2 years ago Felipa began her own business, a grocery store, which is located in her home. Felipa attends to the shop from Monday to Sunday, and her job begins each day at 6 in the morning and finishes at 10 at night. Apart from her job being hard as she has to attend to customers during a very long day, it allows her to be in her home and sell to her neighbours, whom she has known for many years. It is for this reason that Felipa is seeking a loan to be able to invest in purchasing a greater quantity of grocery products and in this way improve her sales.
