Solanda Piedad's story

Solanda is 44 years old and a single mother with two children. The older one goes to school at a place near their home, and the younger is very small and therefore doesn't yet attend school. She began a business at the time that she separated from the children's father. She currently runs a small variety shop. She runs her business by herself and she works from 8:00am until 10:00pm.

She says that in the beginning, her area was full of petty crime and there was very little business for her shop, but little by little these conditions have improved and now things are going quite well, and her dream is to expand her offerings to satisfy the needs of her customers who come to shop at her store each day. Her dream is to make repairs to her home and give her child a better future. With this loan, she hopes to buy more goods for her shop, like paper, stickers, etc.
