A loan of $525 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Dilcia's story

Dilcia, 33, is married living with her two children and her husband in a house they rent from a family member. For the last ten years, Dilcia has been in the grocery business. Her customers are friends and people who visit her store daily. Dilcia’s an enterprising woman who in addition to her grocery store also sells tamales and soup on the weekend.

Dilcia is asking for a loan to buy corn, beans, rice, sugar, detergent, brooms, sauces, pastas, milk, water, etc. to invest more in her store because her customers demand more products every day that she does not stock in her store.

With the loan’s support, Dilcia hopes to improve her business and as a result earn higher profits that will help her move her family forward. Her dream is to own a house.
