A loan of $550 helped to buy household items for her home based general store.


Ilda Nubia's story

Ilda, 50 years old, is the single mother of two children. She has worked in different areas in order to provide them with food and housing. Through sacrifices and a lot of discipline she has opened a little store in her home where she sells household items.

With the idea of improving sales and generating better profits, she is asking for a loan in order to buy supplies such as rice, brown sugar, packages of snacks, soft drinks, sweets and personal hygiene products which will permit her to better serve her clients. She hopes that this investment will allow her to give her children a better quality of life.

She dreams of having a mini market in the near future in order to provide excellent advantages to her children.
