Sandra Milena's story

Sandra Milena is 33 years old, and is a hard-working woman who really wants to succeed. She lives in a rural part of the municipality of Guarne, Antioquia, Colombia.

For the past eight months, she has been making a living selling basic household goods as a result of to the precarious economic situation and her husband's job instability. Because of this, she was driven to set up a small shop in her home in order to contribute to household expenses.

Her biggest dream is to be able to develop her business and invest in supplies, because her customers request various kinds of products, but she doesn't have enough money to meet this demand. This is why she is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy supplies for her shop.
