A loan of $400 helped to buy beans, milk, eggs, bread, rice, sugar, candy, beverages, etc.


Blanca Eloisa's story

Blanca is 44 and lives with her husband and two children in their own house. She owns a store where she sells basic household goods: beans, milk, eggs, bread, rice, sugar, candy, beverages, and more. She has run the business for four years, which has given her the experience to increase profits. The store is in her house, which is in a well-tracked area and is known to neighbors. She has many customers because her store is well stocked.

Blanca wants to grow her business and make another investment, but she lacks funding. She has applied for a loan to buy needed merchandise for her store. She is certain she can pay the loan and also give her family a higher standard of living.
