A loan of $300 helped to buy products to stock her store.

Sandra Evely's story

Sandra, 27, studied up to fifth grade. She's married and her husband's a carpenter. They have one child, 7, who's in school. Only the three of them live in the house.

Sandra has run her own store for four years and acquired a lot of experience. She learned how to do it on her own but her husband motivated her. Previously she only worked on the household chores. She works at home and her husband helps her in the store when he can.

She'll invest the loan in buying macaroni, salsa, cheese she doesn't sell but that a lot of people look for, and other products to stock her store and satisfy customer demand.

She hopes to use the profits to buy construction materials little by little. Her house isn't in good condition and she dreams of making it new.
