A loan of $1,625 helped to buy rice, sugar, cooking oil, and canned goods.


Germania Maria's story

Germania lives in Fortin. She has a small store in the front part of her house. She started her business with a little capital that she had set aside because she wanted to help with the household expenses. Little by little, her income was improving through the sales she made in the area. This is because there were not a lot of stores.

She currently works from 6:00 a.m. until the evening, when she closes her business. In her store she sells rice, cooking oil, sugar, canned goods, and candy, etc.

She has a lot of aspirations for her business. Therefore, she wants the loan in order to be able to buy rice, sugar, cooking oil, and canned goods. That way she will have more foodstuffs for her customers, who buy from her almost every day.
