A loan of $500 helped to buy rice, sugar, ham, and detergents for her business.

Patricia Del Carmen's story

Patricia is single and lives with her parents. She has a store with basic goods: rice, sugar, and beans. She runs the business out of her home and for that reason she doesn’t have set hours in order to serve her customers between Monday and Sunday. She needs a loan to strengthen her business and to buy rice, sugar, ham, and detergents, to offer more variety to her customers, and to be able to get more profits. Patricia’s goal is to further stock her business, to have more variety, and to increase her income. That way she can help her parents with the household expenses.
