A loan of $800 helped to buy beer and soft drinks.


Omaira's story

Omaira is a 48-year-old housewife who makes her son a priority. She has been fighting an uphill battle to support him since she is currently separated from her husband. This situation has been very complicated from the beginning. In order to provide for her family, Omaira came up with a way to sell a very specific product, soft drinks and beer, from her home. This allows her to share the warmth of her family with her customers and the rhythmic environment that is known among the people who live in this area.

Her business has been a great success so far since it has not presented any difficulties for her. The personal challenges she must deal with include being located a long distance from her distributors and attending to her customers. Omaira is requesting a loan in order to buy beer and soft drinks. She hopes to continue growing so that she can provide a better quality of life for her son.
