A loan of $350 helped to buy merchandise to stock her store.

Gloria Esperanza's story

Gloria, 25, lives in the city of Granada and is the mother of two children. She works in her grocery store. She started this activity with help from her mother who encouraged her to have a business of her own. Her initial products were snacks and soft-drinks and gradually she added more items. She’s now been in business for a year and has had profitable results because not a day goes by that she does not sell; she always has customers.

She needs the loan to buy basic grains, oil, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, bread, soup, canned goods. Her goal is to turn her grocery store into a well-stocked variety store where she’ll also sell clothes and shoes.
