A loan of $900 helped to buy groceries.


Fátima Mercedes's story

The client is from the city of Libertad. She established her store some time ago. She did this because, upon seeing that there were no others in the area, she considered it to be an income opportunity. She works alone all day starting early in the morning. She is not married. She has a minor child who is not yet school age. In the future she wishes to be able to augment her store and work hard in order to give her son everything he needs. She now wishes to use the loan to buy rice, soft drinks, and snacks to sell.
