Amira Florinda
Amira, 42, has a grocery store in the front part of her house. She lives in a periurban zone called Guasmo. A year ago she opened the store because she needed a source of income to help her children with their education since she’s unmarried.

She works in the store selling rice, sugar, beverages and canned goods from 8am until 9pm every day. She sells a pound of rice for $0.30, beverages are $1.25 each and candy is $0.05. She will use the loan to buy rice, sugar and canned goods to improve her store’s sales. In the future she hopes the store will be larger and she wants to improve her dwelling.
