A loan of $1,075 helped to buy notebooks, paper, clothing, etc.


Patricia's story

Patricia set up a small business after she arrived in the neighborhood where she currently lives. She bought herself a display case and stands to sell paper, notebooks, even gift items.

She tends the store alone because she works from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. She says that in the beginning there was a lot of crime in the area and she didn't have much business. Little by little the conditions have improved, though, and now it's going very well for her in her business.

Patricia's dream is to expand more to be able to satisfy the demands of her daily customers. She also says she would like to fix up her house, where she lives with her husband, who currently isn't working. That's her dream.

With the loan she wants to buy notebooks, paper, clothing, etc.
