A loan of $275 helped to buy rice, sugar, soft drinks, cold cuts, and other products to sell in her grocery store.


Yadira Mercedes's story

Yadira has a grocery store that she has been running from her home for ten years. During these years, she has been growing her business and she hopes to continue doing so. In the future, she would like to have a larger property for her business. She has applied for a loan of 10,600 pesos to buy some consumer goods to sell in her store and thus expand her inventory. Some of these products are sugar, rice, soft drinks, cold cuts, beans, oil, and canned goods, among others. Yadira is a single mother of four children, all of whom are grown. Her business has helped her to provide for them. She knows that every investment she makes in her business creates an increase in her sales and therefore in her earnings, with which she constantly improves the quality of life that she offers to her family.
