Guadalupe Elizabeth's story

Guadalupe, 44, lives in the city of León. She has two children and is a merchant. She owns a grocery store. She started the business with money from her severance pay from her previous employment in a local supermarket where she worked for seven years. She started out selling cookies she made herself and later started investing in the purchase of basic grains and gradually stocked her grocery store.

She needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, soft-drinks and other mass consumption items. With this investment she hopes to keep her customers satisfied, to vary her merchandise and to make her business grow. Her next goal is to buy two sets of aluminum shelving and two display cases to place her products.
