Heriberta's story

36-year-old Heriberta is married to Mr. Angel. They have three children, Erick, Daniela and Aron. The eldest is studying in the third year of high school, the second in junior year, and the youngest is in the sixth year of primary school.

Heriberta has a grocery store which she has run for over 7 years. She decided to invest in this business because she wanted some independence, earn her own money, and support her children in their studies. She wants to improve her family's financial solvency and quality of life.

This loan will be invested in purchasing more goods such as oil, milk, rice, beans, salt, water, soft drinks, and soap, giving her a wider variety of products to sell.

Heriberta has a big dream to expand her business and premises a bit more, so that she can increase the stock and sell a wider variety of products. This will improve the business and increase profits, thus securing the future of their children who could have good professional careers.

She thanks the foundation for the great support that they are providing, and this aid has improved her business and family life
