A loan of $450 helped to buy products such as household items, plates, glass ornaments, and cosmetics.


Sandra Lorena's story

Fifty-two-year-old Sandra is originally from Granada. She is married and the mother of four children, three of whom are adults. She still cares for the youngest of her children. She has a secondary education and she is the shopkeeper of a small grocery store for a living. With the help of loans, she has been able to stock her business, which has allowed her to increase her income.

She is asking for a loan to buy products such as household items, plates, glass ornaments, and cosmetics in keeping with the month of Mother's Day. Her goal is to have all of the products her customers ask for in her market. Her future plans are to pay off her loan and invest in improving her business' infrastructure.
