A loan of $600 helped to buy merchandise like sugar, beans, oil, and cookies to stock her grocery store.

Virgilia's story

Mrs. Virgilia H. V. is from a place called Ocotepec. She is married and has 5 children in her care: Braulia, Raquel, Clementino, Elizabeth and the smallest, 5 years old, is Erika.

She invested the loan in the purchase of merchandise to stock her grocery store, and asked for the loan to be able to get the products. She has lacked resources to buy more and therefore increase her clientele and her income to improve her quality of life.

She has been doing this for 5 years and says that she decided to open the store to help her husband with the house income, so that together they will be able to get ahead.

Her greatest wish is that her business grows so that she can have more income and support her children who are studying so that they can become professionals.
