A loan of $400 helped to buy merchandise for her grocery store.


Georgina's story

Georgina is a single mom with one daughter in her care. They live in a small community where Saint Andres is celebrated.

The loan that she requested is to invest in the purchase of merchandise to stock her grocery store where she has worked for six years. Things have gone well so far and her income has improved.

She started the business all by herself to increase her income each day and provide necessities to her family.

What she most wants with this business is to continue working and and be able to build her own special spot for her business.
