Mirta's story

Mrs. Mirta, 37, married Mr. Calixto, 52, eighteen years ago. They have four sons who are 17, 14, 11 and 5 years old that go to primary, middle and high school. Mrs. Mirta has had a butcher’s/grocery store for a year. She bought it from her parents, who had it for a long time and decided to sell it now that they are old. Her husband helped her gather the money; she runs it now and has a good customer base. She is requesting a loan to buy noodles, flour, different types of oil, yerba, cookies, cassava, beverages, sweets, shoes and different types of meat to sell in her store. She will be able to offer her clients a wider variety, which will result in a higher income. She appreciates the opportunity she has because it will be useful, not only for her but also for her family.
