Concepción De Lourdes's story

Concepción is 36 and married. Her husband lives outside the country, and she lives in the town of Peña Blanca with her three children. For several years, she has run a small grocery store through hard work and with loans so that she could support her family. She has kept the business going through good management and her husband's help. She sells grocery items like soap, disinfectant, toothpaste,toilet paper, and more.

She has had three loans with ODEF, which were financed through Kiva. She is applying for a loan of 20,000 to buy grocery items like toilet paper, bath soap, disinfectant, toothpaste, basic grains, milk products, beverages, margarine, and sugar so that she can offer her customers more variety and attract even more customers. She will work toward her goal to grow her business and educate her children.
