Caya started the business because she realized that in the block where she lives there was not a single small store, and that they are very necessary in order to obtain basic staple items. For this reason she decided to put in a store and it went well; little by little it has been growing and providing more for her. She needed to make extra money in order to help her husband with household expenses and for their children, since her husband’s salary at times was not sufficient. She started her business in December of 2000, converting the front part of their house and started selling a little merchandise at first. Little by little the business was growing and she was buying shelves to better accommodate her products and have a better selection. Apart from that, she was able to paint the store and circulate the name to improve the image of the store and in this way also sell more products.

She needs a loan for US$500 that she will pay in 4 months in order to by more merchandise that will permit her to have a greater selection and offer a better service to her clients.

Caya inició el negocio porqué se dio cuenta que en la cuadra donde vive no existía ninguna tiendita y son muy necesarias para poder adquirir artículos de primera necesidad, razón por la cual se decidío a poner una y le fue bien, poco a poco ha ido creciendo y surtiéndola mas.
Ella necesitaba ganar un dinero extra para poder apoyar a su esposo con los gastos de la casa y de sus hijos, ya que el salario de su esposo a veces no era suficiente.
Comenzó su negocio en Diciembre de 2000, acondicionó la parte de enfrente de su casa y comenzó vendiendo poca mercancía en un principio y poco a poco fue creciendo y comprando estantes para acomodar mejor su mercancía y tener un mayor surtido, además de que también pude pintarla y roturarle el nombre, lo cual le da una mejor imagen y así también puede vender mas.

Ella necesita un prestamo por US $500 que pagara en 4 meses para comprar más mercancía que le permita tener un mejor surtido para darles un mejor servicio a mis clientes.
