A loan of $1,600 helped to buy paper, gift items, etc.

Pilar's story

Pilar, 61, bought herself a display case and stands where she sells paper, notebooks, and gift items. She tends her small business alone, working from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

She says that in the beginning there was a lot of crime in the area and her business wasn't very productive. Little by little conditions have improved, however, and now it's going very well for her in the business. Her dream is to expand it more to be able to satisfy the demands of all the daily customers in her store. She says she would like to fix up her home and that her dream is to buy a car.

With the loan she wants to buy papers, gift items, etc.
