Julia is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $175 to restock her store with items such as: soap, rice, sugar, oil, salt, beans, soft drinks and candy.
Mrs. Julia Lopez Carrera is 20 years old, married, and has a two year-old girl. She lives in the community of La Estrella, just ten minutes away from the town of Acatlan de Perez Figueroa, in the state of Oaxaca.
One year ago Mrs. Julia started a small grocery store from her own home. She saved some money, purchased a few items (such as beans, rice, and oil), and arranged a few tables and some shelves. She has requested a loan from World Vision in order to further invest in her store and fill it with items such as soap, rice, sugar, oil, salt, beans, drinks, and candy.
Julia believes that this loan will help her store grow. She’s sure that the wider variety of products will help increase her sales and her profits. In the future, Julia would like to build a permanent building for her business from which she can sell her merchandise.
