Las Delicias Group's story

Ms. Santos is 61 years old. She is single and has 1 child who depends on her. She is in sales and has had a grocery store for more than 5 years. She has a good customer base, since her business is located at the entrance to her village, and also because of her good treatment and variety of products.

Ms. Santos is requesting the loan to buy rice, sugar, butter, sausages, milk, cheese, beans, coffee, bread, churros, sodas, water, chicken, and cosmetics to satisfy her clients’ demands and have more merchandise in her store. Since the Christmas season is getting close, this will allow her to increase her income and cover her family’s expenses and her financial obligations.

Ms. Santos’ dream is to have a larger store where she can better care for her clients and improve her family’s quality of life.

Ms. Haydee has more than 7 years of experience selling cosmetics and perfumes.

Ms. Maritza has sold basic grains for more than 1 year.

Ms. Maria Rodríguez has been making and selling bread and tamales for more than 8 years.
