A loan of $1,575 helped to purchase stuffed animals, perfumes and paper supplies.


Orquidia Isabel's story

Orquidia opened her store a few years ago after she had her children, and decided to start a business to be able to help with the household expenses. Her business hours are from 7am to 10pm, 7 days a week, closing in the afternoon for a bit to be able to buy her products. One of the challenges she faces is the location of her business, because the area is a little dangerous. Her husband works as a driver for a company and her children are all adults and are married. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy stuffed animals, perfumes and paper products, etc. This will allow her to improve her sales and be able to make her payments on time, with the hopes that she will maintain a good relationship with the community bank and be able to take out another loan in the future.
