A loan of $500 helped to purchase soft drinks, juice, bottled water, snacks, and cookies.


Sandra Yamileth's story

Sandra is 22 years old and a single mother. She has two children aged 7 and 3. She lives with her parents and runs a store that sells household goods. She's been in this business for 5 years and learned it from her parents, because she has to work in order to provide for her children. She needs to buy merchandise and doesn't have the necessary means to do that. She will have to purchase soft drinks, juice, bottled water, snacks, cookies and other products that are household staples. Sandra requests a loan that allows her to cover those expenses. That way she'll be able to improve her business and offer a wider variety of goods to her customers. Her aspiration is being able to improve her business and earning the proceeds that allow her to provide for her children.
