A loan of $825 helped to buy a tent to protect herself from the rain.

Nidia's story

Nidia has been a very hardworking person all her life because she comes from a family with little economic capacity. Thanks to this important quality in her life, Nidia has been able to get ahead in life to such an extent that she now finds herself married and the mother of a son. With her husband, Nidia took a store that they’ve both been working at for a year. Thanks to it they earn the necessary income to cover household expenses. Nidia has always wanted her son to have the best possible education but her low income has not allowed her to offer this.

Nidia faces a large inconvenience because her store does not have a tent over it to protect it from the rain so that every time it starts to rain she has to close the store so that it won’t fill up with water. Hoping that this situation can change, Nidia is seeking a loan that will allow her to buy a tent to cover the store and protect it from the rain so that she doesn’t have to close every time it rains. Nidia states that this way her income will increase considerably because she’ll have the store open more hours per day and thanks to its good location people will relate to it and lead to its better positioning in her sector.

Nidia hopes that with the increase in her income she’ll be able to improve her current quality of life and be able to save so that she can reach her dream in the future of providing her son with the best possible education so that he can get a job that will generate more income than what she earns in the store.
