A loan of $400 helped to buy sausages, pastries, basic grains, and poinsettias.


Sandra Patricia's story

Sandra lives with her husband and has three children. Two of them are already out of the house. One of their children is handicapped, but still works by selling newspapers. Sandra works by selling tortillas and manages a store. She decided to start this business in order to help her husband. Due to the location of the business, it gets a lot of customers.

She is requesting this loan to buy merchandise to stock her store. She will buy sausages, pastries, basic grains, and poinsettias because it is almost Christmas. This purchase will help her offer a variety of products to her customers and to contribute to the economic improvement of her family.

Sandra hopes to move forward with her husband, and that they can defray the family expenses and pay for the house they live in. She wants her business to grow and her family to have a better standard of living.
