A loan of $2,950 helped to buy food products for her mini market.

Angela Lucia's story

Ángela is 26 years old, single, and with no dependents. She works very hard and enthusiastically in her small business, a mini market, where she sells a variety of basic products for the home, such as: toilet paper, basic grains (beans, corn, rice), sauces for cooking, soft drinks in plastic bottles, etc., things that her customer use every day. She also has a cafeteria and a cybercafé. She completed her secondary education, graduating with a high school diploma in education. She does not currently work in her field, so she decided to open her business. The place where she has her different businesses located is in her parents' house. They have supported her with everything necessary so that she could excel in life and so that she could carry out her ideas. Her customers for the cybercafé are university students who study in the local university on the weekends. She offers them printing and photocopying services, sweets, etc.

She is thankful to God for the customer demand she has and so she requested financing to buy products such as corn flour, colas in cans, Naturas brand juices, instant soups, shortening, and other things that will help her to increase her sales and strengthen her small mini market.

Her plans for the future are to continue expanding her businesses and see them grow by buying more equipment. She wants to be competitive in the area so that in the future her children will have a better wellbeing and a better future.
