A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase food products to supply her store.

Johana Del Pilar's story

Johana is 41 years old, married, and she has 4 children. She lives with her husband, a heavy transport pilot. Johana has had a store selling basic and every day food products for the past 10 years. The business was her father’s and he inherited it to her. For health reasons her store saw a decline in sales and it is the reason why she needs to purchase products to supply her store. She requests a loan to purchase basic and every day food products and also to rent a store space to sell American clothing, which she has already started to sell from her home. She needs a better space where to display the products to her clients. She wants to improve herself and to increase her income to keep supporting her husband with their children’s education.
