A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more stock merchandise for her store.


Nancy's story

Nancy, 28, has a 4-year-old girl who she is raising alone because her partner abandoned her when she became pregnant and did not want to take responsibility for her. It was then that our client’s brother helped her set up a neighborhood grocery store so that she’d have a source of income for herself and the little girl she was expecting. It’s now been a little more than four years that she’s had this business (neighborhood grocery store) which she initially opened with help from her older brother who is like a father to her since she was orphaned at the age of three and her brother took over caring for her. This store or grocery store is located in a good zone where there is a large number of people and no other nearby to be competition for her. Nancy needs working capital to buy more merchandise to better stock it. This is even more true now that the end of year festivities are approaching and demand for beverages in general increases and therefore so do sales. Because of this and according to her need, our client has been given the opportunity to access a loan that will help her improve her source of income and quality of life both for her and for her little girl.
