Josefa is a strong woman living in Carmen de Bolivar, Colombia, with her two children and her husband. Her biggest challenge was to support her children by herself while her husband was sick a few years ago. Fortunately, now he is healthy and currently, both of them are working. Josefa has a grocery store where she sells a wide variety of products. One of her goals was to sell meats and chicken as she already had a freezer; however, she didn’t have the capital to purchase stock. Josefa´s sister told her about Opportunity International and the chance to get a loan and Josefa thought that it was exactly what she was looking for. Josefa received a loan that she used to expand her business by purchasing meat and other products to stock the store. As her sales have increased, she is happy to have more available for her customers. Josefa is thankful to spend time with her family and be less stressed about work. She dreams of traveling with her family and continuing to expand her business and improve their quality of life.
