Laura Concepción
Laura is 59 years old, married and has three children. She’s had a store for the last 15 years. She learned this occupation from her mother. At the beginning, she opened the store with her son so that he’d have his own business and wouldn’t need to emigrate to another country seeking work.

Her suppliers deliver the goods to her house which is where her store is located. Laura will use the loan to buy larger amounts of products that are in high demand in her community, like shoes and basic staple items. This will help her have her store better stocked and maintain her income because hers and her husband’s health have deteriorated so she’s unable to go far from her town looking for products.
