A loan of $275 helped to buy stock wholesale.


Adriana Milena's story

Adriana, 38, is a single mother with three children. Throughout her working life she has earned a living in the field of commerce. Ten years ago Adriana was able to acquire a grocery store located in the front of the house where she lives. She works there alone every day, thanks to her experience running this type of business, because some of her relatives earn a living in this line of work. She sells all the staple products that families need, generating the income to pay for her basic household necessities. Adriana's main challenges are the competition in the field and managing to support her family with her income. Nevertheless, she's known for being strong, active, and hardworking. Adriana's always looking for new alternatives so she can continue making progress. This is why she's requesting the support of the loan to buy stock wholesale (soda, beer, snack food, and other things). This will allow her to have available products to satisfy demand, which increases with the coming Christmas season. She'll have better sales and improve her income. Adriana dreams of positioning her business and buying a store in the future so she doesn't have to keep paying rent, which is very costly and affects the family finances. Doing this, she'll be able to give her children greater well-being and a better education as well as economic stability and a favorable quality of life.
