A loan of $500 helped to buy rice, beans, corn, sugar and noodles.

Edix Mercedes's story

Edix, 52, lives in San Rafael Oriente, San Miguel Department. She’s a single mother; she has just one daughter. She has a grocery store that she started thanks to help from a girl friend. She stocks basic, daily use household items.

She needs a loan to buy such things as: rice, beans, corn, sugar and noodles since these are what customers demand the most and this loan will help her keep sufficient inventory on hand to sell, strengthening herself and offering good customer service.

Edix’s hopes are to increase sales, tend to more customers and improve her and her daughter’s living conditions.
