A loan of $1,000 helped for rice, sugar and beverages.


Diana Carolina's story

Diana, 25, has had a small grocery store since her husband lost his job. She lives in an urban zone called Suburbio that is notable because most of its residents are informal merchants.

She and her husband went through a very bad economic situation and had to ask her mother’s help to set up a small store in their house in order to support her children. Since then she has worked starting at 6:15am selling rice, dairy products and beverages until 10pm.

Her husband has gotten a job and both are now working to support their children who are 6 and 2 years of age. In order to continue earning stable income she wants to use the loan to buy rice, sugar and beverages for her store.

She hopes her family will stay together in the future and to stock her store with varied merchandise.
