A loan of $1,075 helped to buy more products such as rice, sugar and cooking oil, and to improve her store and her home.

Carolina Evelyn's story

Evelyn is 29 years old. She is single and has no children. She started with a small amount of merchandise to sell. She sold products such as soft drinks and rice, and later set up a grocery store in her home, as that is now the way she supports her and her family. She opens her business from 7:00am on.

There was a period when she was in poor health, and that is why her store was getting a bit run-down. But now she has recovered, and is well, so that on weekends she is also going to start selling fast food at her stand near her home.

She has a great desire to see her business grow, and to stock it with more products. So with the loan, she will buy more groceries such as rice, sugar, and cooking oil, and improve her home and her store.
