Juanita Antonia's story

Juanita lives in the city of Granada and is the owner of a small store selling groceries and cosmetics. She has 4 children who are 2, 5, 11 and 15 years old. She started with capital provided to her by her husband, by buying basic products which are some of the best-selling consumer products. She was later invited to a conference for catalogue cosmetic sales, and decided to buy some of these products to sell in her store. She also attended a workshop for women entrepreneurs where the sale of local artesanal products was promoted as a way of earning additional income. She is always looking for ways to get ahead together with her family. Her expectation is to maintain her store with a variety of products. She is requesting a loan to buy wholesale basic products such as oil, beans, sugar, coffee, eggs, oats, detergents, bleach, soap, sauces, toilet paper, etc.
