A loan of $2,625 helped to make improvements to her business and buy inventory (milk products, produce, cookies, candy, sodas, and household items).


Beatriz Elena's story

Beatriz Elena, 48, is married and has five children. She lives on a street in the rural area of Marinilla. For about 14 years, she has owned a shop, where she sells groceries, candy, produce, and other items. Beatriz works hard and strives every day to support her family, though sometimes she finds that hard, as some customers pay their bills late. This reduces her cash flow, which means she doesn't have enough money to buy inventory. She will use this loan to make improvements to her business and buy inventory (milk products, produce, cookies, candy, sodas, and household items) so that her customers will have a good impression of her business and visit often and so that she will have more inventory and higher sales. Her main dream is to continue running her business, to increase sales, and to offer better service to even more customers.
