A loan of $550 helped to buy staple products.


Genoveva's story

Genoveva, 56, is an enterprising woman with many dreams to fulfill. She loves her family and claims they are her greatest strength for getting up each morning and working hard to generate an income. For more than eight years she has been working in her store where she sells staple products, pastries and vegetables. Due to the money that this woman generates, she has managed to provide a better quality of life for her family. Her greatest wish is to stock her store better, because her customers continuously ask for products which she does not have and that results in a loss of money and customers. Therefore she is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of merchandise which will allow her to elevate her level of income.
