A loan of $1,600 helped make alterations to the store and purchase basic household staples.


Yuri Andrea's story

Yuri, 25, made the decision to begin the project of opening a business. Twenty days ago she opened to the public her store that sells household staples. She is requesting a loan in order to make improvements to her location and to purchase some products that have been frequently requested. She would like a loan because she does not have the recourses herself for the investment.

She says she has worked for several years in a mini-mart, which gave her the experience and knowledge she needs to manage her own business. Today she feels that she is accomplishing her dreams and is thankful to God for the opportunity to become a micro-entrepreneur.
