Dolores Cresencia's story

Dolores went to school until the ninth form only, due to her parents’ dire financial situation.
She is a single mother and both her children go to school.
Dolores has had a small grocery store for five years.
She also farms with the help of her son.
Her shop, located at her house, is open from 6 am to 7 pm.
As a single mother, she needs a loan if she wants to be able to restock her shop. She will buy soap, cooking oil, sugar, vegetables, etc. as well as farm supplies to grow staple grains.
Dolores has great dreams for the future: she hopes her children will study hard and have a decent job one day.
On a more immediate note, she also wants to expand her business.
