A loan of $225 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Audelia Cecilia's story

Audelia, 37, owns a grocery store. She’s the mother of four children but still supports only the youngest, a ten-year-old. She started her business selling sweets and ice-cream and with the income she earned she’d gradually buy other types of products and little by little set up a grocery store seeking financing. She was 20-years-old. Her husband works driving a cart moving things from here to there and helps with household expenses this way. She needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, beans, bread, eggs, cookies, detergent, soap and soup because these are products daily requested by customers and which she must have in stock in the grocery store. Her wish is to stock the store with high-demand items, to enlarge the grocery store to be able to earn higher income to live a dignified life with her family.
