Digna Adilia's story

Señora Digna Hernández sells popular consumer products. She has a little grocery store, and she also makes fritters. Digna continues to make fritters, but she has decreased her production because of her new business. In the past, she made them three times a week, and now she makes them twice a week. In her grocery store, she stocks the most necessary items for daily consumer use, such as sugar, rice, pasta, sauces, bouillon cubes, etc., and especially everything related to meat and milk.

Doña Digna is married and is the mother of four children, with a baby two months old. Her husband works as a bricklayer, doing housing construction and repair. Digna decided to work at her business to help her husband with the expenses of their children.

She will use the loan to purchase merchandise to stock her business.
