Guadalupe's story

Guadalupe A. D. R. is 60 years old and lives in Soyapango, in San Salvador department, with her two daughters. One daughter is grown up and works and the other is 18 and studying.

Five and a half years ago, with the desire to live more comfortably, Guadalupe started her own business which is a store selling perishables. Her store is located in her home. Guadalupe serves in her business from Monday to Sunday and, in spite of the fact that it is hard work since she must serve customers all day long, it allows her to be at home and also to sell to her neighbors who have known her for a long time. This makes her business quite stable.

Guadalupe is requesting a loan so that she can invest in her business, buying a larger quantity of essentials so that she can improve her sales.
