Victoria Marina's story

Victoria is a single mother. She started with very little merchandise to sell. Starting with the sale of food items like soda and rice, she later started a grocery store in her house, which she and her family rely on to sustain them. She opens her business at 7:00am.

She is very hopeful that her business will continue to grow so that she can stock more products. She would like to use the loan to buy more groceries, such as rice, sugar and oil.
