Graciela's story

Graciela is 45 years old, a single mother of 2 children, now adults and independent. Three years ago, she established her little general store. It began with a loan granted by PANA PANA to members of its solidarity groups. With the objective of expanding her merchandise, Graciela is requesting her first financing as an individual, to purchase basic grains, snacks, detergents, instant soups, toilet paper, juices, and soft drinks, among other products. Her dream is to expand her business and begin selling new clothing.
