Somehow Nelly, between cleaning the rooms, bookkeeping, and checking her guests in, has found time to open a small gift shop in the storefront adjacent to her hotel. She hopes to receive a loan of $600 to expand the inventory of the gift shop, which currently is limited to women’s hair accessories, postcards, and collectible dolls. She also has maintenance issues in several of the rooms, for which she would use part of the loan money to hire a plumber and electrician to fix.
