A loan of $1,125 helped to buy rice, sugar, grain, noodles.


Jessica Guadalupe's story

Jessica is a young entrepreneur who lives in Fortín, a recently established village that only has running water and electricity. Most of the houses are made of wood, cane or concrete. Here she set up a store two years ago and very much enjoys the business and being able to make her own money, since her parents did not have enough resources. Being very young and single, she lives with her parents and they help with the store when she has to go out to buy products. In her store she sells essential items such as rice, sugar, grains, noodles, etc. She hopes to receive the loan because she wants to buy confectionery products to increase sales so she can fix up her parent's dwelling.
