Josefa's story

Josefa has her own business, it's a small grocery store where she has worked for several years. It is her means of supporting her family; she is married and the mother of four children who are students. Her husband works as a plumber.

To begin with, she used her own money that her husband had given her. Over the years, she has increased her sales and gained customers, and she has been able to balance her costs.

As of today, she has had three financing cycles with Afodenic, with which she has introduced more products. She sells natural fruit drinks in different flavors, and sells ice-cream.

With this loan, she will buy dairy products, meat, chicken, bulk grains, fruits for making the drinks, and other things. She is achieving growth for her business on a daily basis.
