A loan of $350 helped to buy bananas, cabbage, oil, corn and snacks.

Veraly Del Carmen's story

Veraly runs a shop selling domestic products. She lives with her mother and her stepfather in their own house. She is single and has had her business for several years, having learnt it from her mother. She sells domestic products as well as corn snacks in the afternoons.
She is requesting a loan because she needs to invest in products to make the corn snacks, such as bananas, cabbage, oil, and corn, amongst other things which are necessary to strengthen her business. This loan will allow her to expand her inventory and improve her sales, as she will have the supplies necessary to increase her production.
Veraly's aim is to improve her business through this loan, so that in the future she can build a house as well as help her family with the household expenses.
