Berlen Gabriela's story

Mrs. Berlen, 28, owns a grocery store which she runs out of her house. She has been in business for over seven years, and this is not her first experience with the loans, so they have been very gratifying.

She gets up early every morning to take care of the household chores and attend to customers in the store. She plans to use the loan to buy sweets, softdrinks, bread, cookies and basic grains.
