A loan of $1,500 helped to buy beans, milk, eggs, bread, soft drinks, etc.


Ester Cortez's story

Ester lives in her own house with her mother and her husband. She has a store where she sells daily household items such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, soft drinks, etc. She has been doing this for many years and that gives the experience in sales to maximize her profits. It is located in her home which is located in a heavily trafficked area. She is well-known by her neighbors in the area. She has many clients as the store is well-stocked. She wants to expand her business and make a further investment. But she lacks the necessary capital.

For this reason Ester is requesting a loan to buy what is needed in her store. She assures us that she`ll pay off her loan and at the same time is confident that she can give her family a better quality of life.
