Grimaldy's story

With a loan for 22,050 pesos, Grimaldy has been able to buy rice, sugar, coffee, soft drinks, beverages and other merchandise for her grocery store. Grimaldy is a single mother to her 22 month old son.

A year ago she opened this business in an area of her house. She did so in order to have the resources to raise her son. The community where Grimaldy lives does not offer many employment opportunities. Her alternative was to move to the city to look for employment and to leave her son for her mother to raise. However, this was not an option for Grimaldy because she wants to be there for her son and to watch him grow.

Grimaldy’s wish is for her business to get stronger and that it becomes financially sustainable in order to guarantee the support of her son.
