A loan of $650 helped buy daily necessities to sell in her store.

Heydi Aracely's story

26-year old Señorita Heydi has worked to support her family ever since she was young because her mother died when she was 15 years old. Heydi took over responsibility for raising her brothers and sisters and paying for household expenses. She is now 26 and the youngest of four siblings. She has her own business, a store where she sells daily necessities.

Now Heydi needs to buy more stock for her store. She is currently studying at university as she wants to get professional qualifications and be able to administer her store properly. Her dream is to build a house of her own with the profits and continue supporting her siblings as they are still not married. She feels blessed as each day more customers visit her store.
