A loan of $1,000 helped to buy rice and sugar.

Angelica Maria's story

Angélica is 26 years old. She has a grocery store where she sells essential items. She lives with her children in Guasmo, a district which is noted for the fact that most of its residents are salespeople.

Angélica set up her store with her husband so that they could have financial stability and provide their two children with a better life. With the help of her husband, she has been able to stock her store and continue with her business. Her husband is a taxi driver. He helps her in the mornings, leaving her the merchandise which she needs. In her store she sells rice, oil, canned goods, snacks, drinks, bread, etc.

Angélica will use her loan to buy food such as rice, canned goods and drinks so that she has more variety in the products she offers. In the future, she would like her children to have a good life financially and for them to have a good education.
