A loan of $375 helped to buy supplies like rice and potatoes.


Gregoria's story

Gregoria, age 41, is the single mother of four children, ages 15, 12, 8, and 1. Gregoria makes and sells food. This is her first loan cycle with the institution. Gregoria will use this loan to buy supplies like rice and potatoes to make her delicious food. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she wants to take advantage of the benefits of buying supplies for her business in large quantities. Gregoria faces a challenge in her business; she does not have a fixed sales location. She will use the profits from the loan to buy a fixed stand at the market in her area. This is her biggest wish. Gregoria is a very hard-working person. Through this business activity she, alone, gets her children ahead. She is accompanied in the photo by her eight year old daughter.
