A loan of $775 helped to buy candies, basic grains, detergents, bread, soup and canned goods.


Bera Cruz's story

Bera Cruz has a grocery store which is located in her own home. She started her business 22 years ago. She initially started out selling candies to children and gradually re-invested in her business. This enabled her to start selling basic grains which is what people buy the most. She confirms that her aim on setting up her business was to find an alternative source of support for her children. The business has been a great help to her in getting ahead in life since her children have been able to study as a result. She is currently requesting a loan to buy candies, basic grains, detergents, bread, soup and canned goods.
