Anita Jomaira's story

Anita is the single mother of two beautiful children. She has a grocery store in her home with which she covers her expenses. She started the store several years with the help of a brother who emigrated abroad. Thanks to his help she was able to open the business which she has slowly expanded.

She waits on the public from 6 in the morning until 9 at night. She does not have a rest period because she lives there and takes care of her children.

One of her greatest worries is accidents because her house is located in a busy area and she has had several bad experiences as, for example, when a drunk driver crashed into her house and destroyed her business and part of her home. Since she was pregnant at the time the incident left a strong impression on her. Thank God she was able to recover and continue working to make up the loss. That is why she is applying for a loan to purchase products such as rice, sugar, provisions, canned goods, etc. She also needs a display case and to build several cabinets.

She hopes to continue with her business for a long time because she would like to refurbish her house and store in order to provide a more promising future for her children.
