A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wholesale groceries like rice and sugar.


Rossemary's story

Rossemary, age 38, has two children, ages 16 and 13. She sells basic needs products in her grocery store, which is located in the Magisterio area.

This loan is her first cycle with the institution. Rossemary will use this loan to buy wholesale groceries like rice and sugar. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she needs to stock her business.

Rossemary faces challenges in her business due to instability in the local economy. She will use the funds to continue to buy merchandise to stock her business. Her goal for her business is to expand her store and her inventory. This way she will have a lot of customers, increase her income, and thereby improve her quality of life.
