A loan of $325 helped to increase the merchandise in her store.

Olinda's story

Olinda is 32 years old and lives with her 3 children. She has owned her own business for the past 10 years, a store which she runs independently. Thanks to her business, she is able to take care of her children's basic needs. Her store is open every day, even on Sundays, which allows her to place orders with distributors of agricultural products. This gives her an advantage as she can manage her own time. In addition, her store is near a school zone and she has a good client base. One of the risks of her business is robbery, so she must be very vigilant. She is satisfied, and continues forging ahead because her children are her highest priority. This will be Olinda's first loan, which she will repay because she is a responsible person. She is requesting this loan so that she can acquire more merchandise for her store, such as beverages and other supplies.
