A loan of $650 helped to invest in basic grains, dairy products and candies.


Simona Del Carmen's story

Simona is still selling every day in her small grocery store. Thanks to her hard work, savings, earnings and financing, she has been able to sell a range of different products. She has dedicated herself completely to her store, since selling clothes in the departments wasn't resulting in profits.

Her four children are married and she is separated from her husband. This has been a sad time in her life, but she has the support of her children and grandchildren. She will keep investing since she has to pay for all of the expenses of water, electricity, food and medicine.

With this new loan she will buy: six quintales of rice, three quitales of sugar, five cans of oil, dairy products and candies. These are very much in demand from her customers. For her this loan payment plan is very satisfactory, since it balances her finances.
