Estela's story

Estela is a very friendly woman, the single mother of four children, two of whom are school-age and two who are younger. Twelve years ago she started her small grocery store with her own capital, 9,800 córdobas. With the goal of increasing her inventory, she joined a solidarity group five years ago. She is requesting her first loan in the individual category to purchase merchandise: basic grains, toilet paper, powdered milk, mortadella [sausage], toothpaste, tomato sauce, cleaning supplies, juice, and soda, among other items. Her dream is to grow her business.
