Berta Alicia's story

Bertha lives with her husband and a daughter. She runs a store where she sells basic staple items. She learned how to run it because she needed to have a source of income at home. She’s had it for seven years and has been steadily improving.

She is asking for a loan to buy shoes, sandals, powder and clothes. This purchase will help her stock the store having new items that are useful for her customers because they won’t just find foodstuffs but also clothing accessories.

Bertha hopes to keep the store well-stocked to generate higher profits through the products and, above all, to live with dignity with her family.
