A loan of $200 helped to buy basic grains, rice, oil, sugar, etc.

Alejandra De Los Angeles's story

Alejandra, 32, is from Granada; she’s married to a merchant and is the mother of a 7-year-old child. She works in her grocery store. She started this activity with help from her mother who encouraged her to have her own business because her husband is a salaried employee and she helps him cover household expenses with what she earns. This was when she decided to invest in another business: selling food to her friends in the health center. She’s been in business for 7 years now and is having profitable results since there are no days when she does not sell; she always has customers.

She needs the loan to buy basic grains, rice, oil, sugar, etc. Her goal is to turn her grocery store into a well-stocked variety store and her next goal is to expand the food sales to offer all variety of dishes to her customers.
