Nilsa Rosalía T. (35) lives with her partner; the couple has a son who attends high school. Nilsa’s boyfriend works as a taxi driver, helping her to generate more income.

Ten years ago Nilsa decided to create a self-employment. Firstly she started selling fruits and vegetables in a little store in front of her house. Then Nilsa had to stop working since she had a heart problem and she needed a surgery followed by a long period of recovery. Consequently, she closed the store. Despite these hard times and her unhealthy situation, Nilsa never gave up. And when her condition improved she opened the grocery store and continued working with full energy. Today, she offers a wide variety of products to large numbers of customers. The grocery store is located in a neighborhood where the government established many homeless families who had nowhere to go.

It is worth mentioning that Nilsa is studying at nursing school. Nilsa’s biggest dream is to finish school and become a nurse in order to help her community.

She needs this loan to increase the number of sales at her grocery store. The products she will buy with the loan are sugar, rice, pasta, breads, drinks, candies, and cleaning products among others.
