A loan of $775 helped to make changes in her kitchen and improve her working conditions.

Amparo Guillermina's story

Amparo is a vibrant woman who is dedicated to her family. She is the mother of one son whom she has raised alone, since her husband died and all the responsibility and economic burden fell on her. With the goal of generating income to pay the basic household expenses, she set up a little grocery store in a space in her home, and in addition she prepares tamales and sells them among her friends and neighbors in the sector to supplement her income.

The loan that she is applying for is destined to make some changes in the kitchen and improve her working conditions. With this she will be able to prepare her foods with an appropriate level of hygiene and thus guarantee her customers a product of excellent quality and flavor, which will be reflected in an increase in her sales and, as a result, her income.

Amparo states that her greatest wish is to have her store in a more spacious location in order to have a greater storage capacity and to improve her level of sales. Thus she will be able to guarantee financial stability in order to offer a university education to her son and give a better quality of life to her family.
