A loan of $1,025 helped to remodel her store and to buy groceries and bazaar merchandise.

Zaida's story

Zaida was originally a member of a women’s group (also known as a women’s bank). However, due to personal reasons, she left the group after she completed her second loan cycle. Zaida now has a small convenience store established in her home. She sells products through a catalog as a traveling vendor, but she also sells groceries. There are no other businesses in the area that offer this type of service.

Zaida’s business enables her to generate income to help with the family expenses. Her husband is a seasonal laborer who engages in farming activities. From the very beginning, her main limitation has been the lack of money. Therefore, she has taken the opportunity to contact Fundación Mujer about applying for a new loan so that she can solidify her business.

Zaida lives with her husband and two-year-old son. Owning a business enables her to look after her child without having to work outside of the home.
