A loan of $600 helped to buy basic grains, sweets, bread, eggs, drinks, etc.


Gabriela Martinez's story

Gabriela is 55 years old and lives with her family in her own home. She has a stand where she sells staples, bread, beans, rice, milk, eggs, and sausages among others. She has been in business several years and that has given her valuable experience permitting her to obtain higher earnings. She has many customers because she sells quality products at low prices, and she is very friendly.

She wants to invest in her business buying more products to supply her store so she is asking for a loan in order to buy basic grains, sweets, bread, eggs, instant products, drinks, etc.

Gabriela has good payment references and is very responsible. She says that she can pay her debt and at the same time she hopes that this will allow her to be able to give her family a better quality of life.
