A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothing and notions, such as pans, shoes, and more.


Bernarda's story

Bernarda is a shopkeeper. For over five years, she has had a well-stocked convenience store in her home where she works with her husband, Ramón. She and Ramón have been married for over 20 years. He is retired and receives a state pension.

Bernarda has no complaints about her sales, as she has plenty of customers all day because there are two big workshops next-door to her business and many people stop by. She is a very hardworking person who pushes to keep working.

She is asking for this loan to buy clothing and notions so she will have more products in her store, which will attract more customers.
