Fidela Belgica's story

Fidela is 59 years old. She is a hard-working woman who has workedever since her husband abandoned her and their two children. She decided to sell confectionery in order to cover her household expenses but over time her business became popular and so she started selling food products.

Fidela lives in a peri-urban area. She works in a small store that she set up in the front part of her home. She currently works in her small store from 6.00am to 9.00pm. One of the problems that she has with her business is that it is the rainy season which makes it difficult for her customers to come and buy the merchandise that she sells. Fidela sells rice, sugar, canned goods and drinks in her small store. She would like to use her loan to buy sacks of rice, drinks and canned goods for her store. In the future, she would like her children to become professionals and to increase her business.
