A loan of $375 helped to buy quintals of cheese.


Justina Adilia's story

Justina, 50, sells cheese, a business located in the market. Before having her business she worked as an itinerant cheese saleswoman for a merchant who was a cheese wholesaler; this is how she got experience with this food item. Motivated to start her own business, she rents a space where she started her own venture selling cheese at wholesale and retail. She’s improved as a micro-businesswoman but nevertheless needs a loan to increase sales volume with more product on-hand in the market. She’s a widow and has two children who help her with customer service in her business.
