A loan of $425 helped purchase groceries to stock a store.


Brenda Rocio's story

Ms. Brenda Rocio would use the loan to open a grocery store. Since she is a single mother with young children, she does not want work to separate her from them. The grocery store would be the solution, as it would allow her to be home to watch her children and earn an income in addition to the meals she sells on the weekends. She also prepares meals for home delivery and is well known and appreciated in her neighborhood. Due to the location of her home, she thinks an in-home store would be needed as the other stores are too far removed from where she lives, therefore her store would be the best option.
