A loan of $275 helped to purchase more merchandise for her small store.


Leobarda's story

Senora Leobarda is a hard working person who wants to improve her quality of life, and help her husband with their household expenses. A few months ago she opened a small general store in her daughter's house, since there were few shops nearby. She calls her shop "Abarrotes Lizzy", which translates into Lizzy's General Store. She sells a variety of items including fruit drinks, snacks, dairy products, rice, sugar, beans, etc. Right now she needs to purchase more items that her customers are requesting, as she doesn't want to lose business. With this investment she can continue to grow her income.
