A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a freezer.

Alejandrina's story

43 year old Alejandrina lives with 45 year old Juan and they have 4 children who are still in school. Together, they live in their own home in the city of Santa Rosa. She stands out for being a woman with many responsibilities. She gets up very early to drive to her work and open the doors of her business to await her first customers of the day. She has been running this business for 10 years, and in this time she has been dedicated to it, selling basic groceries such as rice, sugar, noodles, detergents, jellies, and other things. She is very happy in her work because, thanks to this job, she has added assets to her home and she can cover the cost of her dear children's education. Her food stall is located in the city of Santa Rosa and it is very busy with her customers. She hopes to have the financial support to be able to offer good service to her demanding customers. This will be her 9th loan and she promises to make her repayments punctually. She will use the money to buy a freezer so that she can better preserve her dairy products.
