A loan of $1,050 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Digna Petita's story

Digna, 55, with God’s help started her business a few years ago (grocery store) that she uses to support her children since her ex-husband is no longer with her and did not help her with household expenses. She works alone every day from 8am until 10pm.

Her difficulty is that she lives on a hill and the sector is very dangerous due to crime. She’s not married and has children but they are all adults. She will use the loan to buy groceries like beverages, rice and sugar. Her goal is to manage to open an eatery at home.
