A loan of $475 helped to buy merchandise for her store.

Raquel's story

Raquel has spent more than three years working in her little grocery store. She is asking for a loan to buy merchandise such as fruit, dairy and cleaning products. She doesn't have the capital she needs to make this investment in her business and she doesn't want to de-capitalize her earnings, since this is the source of income that she has for her family. She is a single mother and has three children she is raising. She wants her business to have a wider variety of merchandise so her customers will find what they need in her store. With the earnings she makes from this investment, she will pay for the loan.
