A loan of $775 helped to buy rice, sugar, canned goods, vegetables, and cleaning supplies.


Jahaira Alexandra's story

Jahaira has always loved business, and, therefore, opened a small shop with a few groceries over 5 years ago. Today, her well-stocked store is located in her neighborhood El Fortín. There were few stores when she opened, which allowed her to maintain a wide clientele on the basis of her hours and service. Since her husband is a farmer, her products are always fresh.

She manages her business with her children from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., when she closes the store. Her merchandise comprises basic commodities, so she sells mostly rice, sugar, canned goods, vegetables, cleaning supplies, and so on. She is requesting this loan to expand her stock to include other items. She hopes her business will be more profitable and also wants to help her husband prosper by expanding it.
