A loan of $350 helped to buy merchandise: detergents, soap, sugar, corn, beans and rice.

Candida's story

Cándida is 36 years old. She is a widow and has two children aged 18 and 12. She runs a store in which she works full time because her customers come to buy her products at all hours. She sells basic household products such as bread, snacks, cookies, drinks, etc.

Cándida is requesting a loan so that she can buy merchandise and thereby strengthen her inventory. She will buy detergents, soap, sugar, corn, beans and rice. This investment will strengthen her business and she will be able to offer her customers much needed products.

Cándida's goals are to expand her business and see her children become professionals. She would also like to make some improvements to her home. For this reason, she works hard to keep her business going.
