A loan of $1,100 helped to buy rice, oil, sugar, beans, eggs, and milk.


Martha's story

Martha, a modest merchant who lives in the city of León, is married and the mother of three children.

She says her previous loan helped her stock more products in her grocery store, which allowed her to attract more customers and improve her sales. Before she had only one cabinet to display her products and now she has two. She's very grateful because it's allowing her business to grow.

Currently she needs a new loan to buy rice, oil, sugar, beans, eggs, and milk wholesale because they're the products most in demand that her customers look for every day. Giving her customers what they need will allow her to keep them loyal.
