A loan of $1,000 helped to buy 100 tanks of propane gas.


Ingrid Xiomara's story

Ingrid, 22, is single and has no children. She was only able to study through high school. She lives with her grandmother and doesn’t have any dependents. Ingrid makes a living selling and distributing tanks of propane gas. She’s been doing this kind of work for one year. She gained the necessary experience when she worked for a company doing the same kind of thing. Today, that is her only source of income. The products are delivered to her home. Then, she is in charge of distributing them in the area with the help of a friend. This loan will be used to buy 100 tanks of propane gas to meet the demand in the area. Ingrid is a forward-thinking person; she hopes to obtain more income to some day start up a formal store that sells essential products and also to buy a motorcycle to deliver the products.
