A loan of $850 helped to purchase basic food items and thus increase the variety of products offered to her customers.

Bertha Cecilia's story

Bertha is the owner of a general store which generates the income required to maintain her home. Thanks to her daily efforts she has been able to grow her business slowly and overcome the difficulties that have arisen. The biggest challenge her store faces is the lack of capital to invest on a wider variety of products to offer to her customers. Thanks to an increase in sales Bertha is seeking a loan to purchase basic food basket items so she can increase the product offering for her customers.
Bertha’s dream is to continue working in this business until her health permits, thus she can provide her family a better quality of life.
