A loan of $400 helped to buy bread, drinks, and plastic products to sell.


Domitila's story

Domitila, age 49, lives with her daughter, with whom she works in her own business. She is a single mother, and she works very hard to get her daughter ahead and to give her the best and everything she needs.

Domitila has a store where she sells perishable products and basic needs products. The store is located in her house.

She is requesting a loan to stock her business. This is because Domitila does not have the money needed to do so. It is much needed by her as much as for her daughter. It is this business that’s allows them to cover the family expenses.

She wishes to be able to stock her store with products like detergent, canned food, bread, candy, drinks, plastic products, and others. These are basic needs products for the household. They are also the products that are most requested in the store.

Domitila hope to improve her income in order to have a more stable life.
