A loan of $300 helped to buy rice, beans, candy, etc.


Ana Silvia's story

Ana is 40 years old and lives with her husband and their two children in a home they own. She has a store where she sells items of basic need, beans, milk, eggs and bread, among other things. She has had this business for 4 years and it has given her experience with sales, allowing her to improve her earnings. The business is located in her home. It is very well-known by the neighbors in the area. She has developed a large clientele, as she has the store stocked.

She wants to grow the business and make a new investment, but she needs capital. For this reason she has asked for a loan that will allow her to buy what she needs for her store, like beans, corn, rice, candy and oil, among other things. She promises that she will pay off the debt and she is also confident that she will give her family a better quality of life.
