A loan of $675 helped to buy rice, sugar, fruit, and canned goods.


Angela Maria's story

Ángela, age 41, lives in Libertad. She started out selling sweets. Then she decided to sells basic needs products. She now has a store. She works alone Monday through Sunday from seven in the morning until eight at night. She now has a general supply store. She fears that she will not have financing or income.

She is not married, but she does have children who attend public school. She puts forth great effort day to day in order to get her children ahead.

She will use the requested loan to buy more basic needs products like rice, sugar, fruit, and canned goods. She will do this in order to be able to better stock her store or business. She will do this to get greater income, and then she will able to sell in bulk.
