Beatriz Eugenia's story

Beatriz Eugenia is 50 years old, is in a common law relationship with her partner and has four children. She runs her own small store from which she sells groceries, dairy products, cold meats and packed lunches, among other products that are part of the family shopping basket. Her store is located in a district of the municipality of Rionegro. Beatriz Eugenia is hardworking and fights everyday to provide for her family. Although her profits only cover her family’s basic necessities, she is not deterred from continuing to work hard.

Beatriz Eugenia is requesting a loan to buy merchandise to stock her store, including pastries and sweets, cookies and crackers, dairy products and packed lunches. With these products she will be able to offer a greater variety to her customers and increase her sales. Her principal dream is to grow her business to be the biggest in the district, and to improve her family’s quality of life.
