A loan of $500 helped to buy products for a general store.


Myriam Patricia's story

Patricia is a single mother with four children who are 8, 10, 13 and 20 years old. Three of them live with her and are in school and the eldest daughter is already independent. Patricia works in the sale of foodstuffs and it has been a year since she began her business, which is a store. She will invest the loan in the purchase of merchandise for the store.

Patricia's goal is to continue growing her business in order to make money and cover the expenses incurred educating and maintaining her children. She says that is her greatest pride since she struggles only for her children.
