Ivette's story

Ivette is 30 years old, engaged and has 3 children who are between the ages of 12 years old and 7 months. Two of her children go to school. She has owned and managed a food shop in a neighborhood of the capital city for two years. Her small business is successful thanks to her warm personality, her experience in the business and her loyal customers. This last point is very important yet she struggles to satisfy her customers needs because she only has sufficient capital to buy her inventory at retail prices. She is requesting this loan to strengthen her business' capital, to be able to diversify her inventory (rice, salt, bottled water, sugar, soaps), and to be able to increase her profit margins. She plans to reinvest a portion of her profits back into the business to cover expenses and the other part she will use to take care of her and her family's daily needs.
