A loan of $850 helped to buy rice, sugar and cleaning products.

Marjorie Raquel's story

Marjorie is 35, and lives with her family in the city of Milagro. Angel, Marjorie's husband, has 22 years experience as an electrician in a workshop. She has two small children who go to school.

Before having a business, she worked as a sales clerk, but the salary she received was not enough to cover her expenses. For that reason she decided to open her grocery store. It is located in her home, and she named it "La Económica”. She sells convenience products for daily use.

Marjorie opens her store every day from 7:00 in the morning to 8:00 at night. She opens early as she has customers at that time of day. With the loan, she hopes to buy rice, sugar, cleaning products, etc., hoping for more sales so that her business grows.
