Blanca Mirian's story

Blanca has a store that generates the income she needs to feed, educate, and provide health care for her children. She is single and lives with her two children (ages 10 and 6). Blanca manages her business with her family, but starting her own venture has enabled her to be independent. She will buy rice, beans, corn, oil, sugar, and other products so that she can have more inventory in her store. This will increase her earnings and provide a wider variety of products for her customers.



Her dream is to expand her business and to repair her home so that her children can live in a more secure environment.
