A loan of $600 helped to buy snacks, cookies, sweets, soft drinks, juices, pastas and personal hygiene products.


Olga Marina's story

Olga sells basic household necessities. She lives with her husband and they have three children, all of whom depend on them. She learned her business because of the financial need in the home. She has been carrying it on for three years. One of the advantages she has is not having much competition in the area.

She is requesting a loan with the intent of investing it in the business and restocking goods such as snacks, cookies, sweets, soft drinks, juices, pastas and personal hygiene products. This purchase will help her add variety to her merchandise. One of her risks can be variation in the prices of basic household goods.

Her aim is to build a large business that will generate better earnings and provide her children with the diet and education they need to develop academically.
