Nohemí Adriana's story

Every morning Nohemí wakes up to set up her little grocery store that she opened five years ago with the help of her mother. In the beginning she sold snacks, sweets and fizzy drinks. Now Nohemí has all her clothes softeners and soaps neatly in order as, for her, it is very essential that customers see that that tidiness and hygiene is very important as Nohemí provides her customers with the best service. At just 26 years old, Nohemí has a three-year-old son, whom Nohemí wants to see become a professional in the future. Nohemí hopes that her son will become a professional with the help of her and her husband's income (Nohemí's husband has a garage where he fixes cars). For financial reasons, Nohemí was only able to study up to second year at secondary school.

Nohemí nowadays is blessed to have more working capital than previously. This has allowed her to make improvements to her home. Nevertheless, Nohemí's desire to do better does not stop there and she wants to move forward with her work. Because of this, Nohemí needs to apply for a loan in order to increase her stock and buy more lavatory paper, shampoos, soap, eggs, bread and more. It is Nohemí's dream to expand her little grocery store into a mini-supermarket but first she wants to set up a stall at the market in order to save money and achieve her dream.
