A loan of $500 helped to buy flour, cooking oil, firewood, sugar, lard, yeast.

Leticia Del Carmen's story

Leticia is requesting a new loan. She feels that her business is improving through the loans. It allows her, through this financial resource, to buy at a better price and to buy the materials in bulk.

This time she will buy flour, cooking oil, firewood, sugar, lard, yeast, and other materials she needs to make bread. This new investment will give her a greater advantage to get ahead of sales.

The use of the previous loan has had a positive impact. She feels that she is prospering in the business. So far she has kept the level of production quite stable. Her sales have been good, and this has allowed her to have an improved financial solvency in her family.
