A loan of $425 helped to buy staple grains.

Ivania Elizabeth's story

Ivania is 21 years old, married, and lives in the city of Granada. Her job is that of shopkeeper; she is the owner of a small grocery store and she sells staple grains for a living. She started out with money saved from the salary she earned as a salesperson at her father's business.

Ivania wants to have a greater diversity of products in her grocery store as she hopes to keep her business active so she can meet her customers' needs. She is asking for this loan to buy staple grains and all the merchandise she needs to stock her grocery store. She believes this will be helpful because it will allow her to invest in her business by buying the products most requested by her customers. Her plans for the future are to expand her business to attract more customers so that she can make more profits. Her next goal is to make improvements to her home so that she can have better living conditions.
