A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase products included in the family basket for her small store.

Edilma María's story

Edilma is a housewife, worthy of admiration and respect. With her efforts and perseverance she has managed to get ahead. Edilma tells us that her life has not been easy, due to the fact that her husband abandoned her and she had to assume all responsibilities for the home and the well-being of her 4 children. Despite the difficult economic situation that Edilma confronted, her hope was never extinguished and her children became the fundamental factor in her desire to get ahead.

Thanks to the collaboration of her mother, Edilma began her entrepreneurial project, creating a small vegetable store in her home. And thanks to customer demand, the business has been growing, to the point where she now offers the products that make up the family basket.

Today Edilma is a woman grateful to God for her life with this opportunity available to build her own business and to guarantee her children a good quality of life and better educational opportunities.

With the proposition of seeing her business grow and her economic condition stabilize, Edilma is requesting a loan for the purpose of purchasing a selection of merchandise, as she dreams of seeing her store grow.
