A loan of $200 helped to buy consumer staples such as coffee, oil, rice, beverages, and chicken.


Nubia Esperanza's story

Nubia is from Granada and is a merchant who has a grocery store where she sells wood and cooked beans. She is married and has 3 children; she is responsible for one, and the other two are independent. She began the business by selling cooked beans and firewood. Later she realized that the neighbors were requesting consumer staples like rice. So she set up her little grocery store with the support of financial institutions, as this was her first business.

She has other income because her husband sells small appliances and clothing in the surrounding areas. She hopes to increase her stock of basic products. She will use the loan to buy consumer staples such as coffee, oil, rice, beverages, and chicken. The loan will help her maintain her business and generate more profit. Her plan for the future is to leave her children a well-stocked, profitable business that will allow them to survive.
