A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase rice, sugar, and supplies.


Alexandra Lucrecia's story

Alexandra lives in the region known as Isla Trinitaria. She owns the house she lives in, which has all the basic services. Several years ago, she opened a grocery store where she sold rice, sugar, and basic supplies. As time passed and her customer base increased, she also increased the products she sold. Now, she has a little bit of everything available in her store. She runs her business by herself, and starting it has been the best decision she has made since now she can care for her children. She feels good about the achievements she has made. She is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise and keep her store stocked, which is the best way to attract customers. She hopes to improve her sales so she can make her payments on time, and more importantly, improve her finances. Her dream for the future is to expand her store since it is a little cramped.
