Miriam Amparo's story

Miriam is head-of-household; she has six children she strives to move forward alone. She currently works tending to her business located in a very busy sector of the region she lives in. She offers there a variety of basic staple items like dairy products, bread, cookies and crackers, eggs, meats, soft-drinks, etc. with which she earns income to provide her family with daily sustenance.

She’s a well-organized, responsible and very hardworking woman who despite the economic difficulties she’s had does not stand still and always seeks options to get ahead. This is what motivated her to request her first loan to buy stock merchandise for her store (eggs, dairy products, cleaning supplies, packaged snacks, soft-drinks) to have a variety of goods on-hand to satisfy customer needs thus increasing sales so that her income will improve and to be able to provide her children with better quality of life and good education.
