A loan of $550 helped to buy groceries.


Jacinta's story

Jacinta is married and has three children; ages 15, 13, and 5. The two oldest are school age.

She sells groceries (sugar, rice, oil, and noodles, etc.). Her small store is located in her house. She has been working in this business for two years. Jacinta chose this type of work to help her husband and to have more income for the household.

A challenge that Jacinta faces is her youngest daughter’s health. At this time it is too cold. She faces this challenge by being very careful with her daughter’s health as well as being careful with the rest of the family's health.

She will use the loan to buy merchandise for her store.

Jacinta’s dream is to see her business grown until it becomes a large grocery store.

She is a very enterprising person. She is very optimistic about, together with her husband, getting her children ahead.

She is very grateful for the opportunity to grow and to reach her dreams.
