Apolonia's story

Ms. Apolonia S. is 32 years old and is single.

She has a business in the Capiata neighborhood, where she also lives. Apolonia sells food, cleaning products, and basic household products to her neighbors. She gets up very early to go to the Abasto Market, where she buys everything necessary to stock her store, which is the only one of its kind in the area. With this business she has been able to build a small home on the land she inherited from her parents. Apolonia needs this loan to better stock her business, as she has regular customers and every day gets more orders.
