A loan of $1,100 helped to buy food products, household goods, and general merchandise to sell in her store.


Maria Haydee's story

María Haydee is 35 years old, married, and lives in Chichigalpa. She has two children to take care of, one in primary school and the other in secondary school.

She owns a small grocery store where she sells food products, household goods, and general merchandise like rice, sugar, beans, oil, frozen products, candies, children's, women's, and men's clothes, cosmetics, shampoo, and other things. She started this business many years ago by selling snacks. After a while, she got the idea to open a grocery store, taking advantage of the fact that there was not a business by her home that sold basic goods and general merchandise.

She makes her purchases in wholesale markets, stores, and from suppliers who come to her store to sell their products. Her sales are in cash and credit to regular and occasional customers.

The payment of her family's expenses, which include food and maintenance, depend on the business that she runs.

María requests this loan for working capital, to invest in more products for the store, and for general merchandise.
