A loan of $475 helped working capital.


Carla Patricia's story

Carla is 30 years old. She runs a general store business, and lives in an area visited by various customers. She started running this business ten years ago because she didn’t have a stable job to generate income and support her family. She currently opens her grocery store from 7am until 9pm. The loan will serve to continue the business and stock her store. With the loan she wants to buy drinks, rice, sweets, canned goods, soups, detergents and cleaning products. Her aspiration for the future is that she wants a bigger store with more stock, and she also wants to sell more products to earn additional income.
