Hardworking grandmother and entrepreneur, Blanca Moldonado lives in Cucuta, Colombia with her husband and grandson. For many years, Blanca has managed a grocery store to provide a variety of snack foods and grocery items to her community members. It hasn’t been easy for her family, and there was a time when Blanca was not able to afford to meet the daily needs of her grandson. Everything began to change for Blanca when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. Blanca received financial training and a loan to invest in her shop and purchase inventory in bulk. With more grocery items to sell and a greater diversity of products, she was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. One day, Blanca dreams of saving up enough to take her family on vacation. Thanks to the loan she received, Blanca will be able to save for her grandson’s education and future.
