A loan of $825 helped to buy a variety of pharmaceuticals so that her customers can find what they need in her pharmacy..


Dora Tarcila's story

Dora has been a hardworking woman her whole life. Thanks to that, she has been able to get ahead with her husband and their 2 children. Dora has always wanted her 2 children to have everything they need, so she works hard at her job every day.

Dora has worked at different activities to generate income for her home. Before, she sold cell phones and did cell phone repairs, but the business didn't let her have enough income. That is why she opened a pharmacy that allows her to access more income. Because she and one of her children knew the business, the pharmacy has been growing and getting more stable in the area. Thanks to her good service and the good quality of the products she offers, Dora has been able to attract customers and make her business well known. At present, Dora has very good sales, but at times she has to turn down orders from customers because she doesn't have the products they are asking for. That is why Dora wants to buy pharmaceutical products for her business so that she can respond to all of her customers' needs. Nonetheless, Dora doesn't have enough capital to purchase the merchandise. She hopes that the loan will allow her to access the purchase of pharmaceutical products and thus stock her business so that her customers can find everything they need in her business.

Dora hopes to increase her sales significantly in this way and offer a better quality of life to her children and her husband. She also wants to offer her children a university education that will allow them to find well paid jobs in the future.
