A loan of $500 helped to buy medicines.

Amancia Isabel's story

Amancia is 55 years old. She has a pharmacy in the front part of her home. She lives in a peri-urban area called Fortín in a house which has water and light as basic services.

She started her business 6 years ago with a working capital of $300 in medicines. Through hard work, determination and the good service which she provides to her customers, she managed to increase this capital.

To increase her income, Amancia also sews clothes. She sells medicines from 6.00am to 9.00pm from the front part of her home where her business is located. She will use her loan to buy medicines for her business.

In the future, she would like to expand her business and stock it with hardware merchandise. She would also like her family to have a better life.
