Carlota Elizabeth
Carlota Elizabeth A. C., 28, has had her grocery store for two years now. She stocks food and basic needs items in a space in her home, located in Lourdes Colón, La Libertad department. She lives there with her family, which is made up of her husband and two children, 9 and 4 years old, who are enrolled in the local elementary school. Carlota requests funds hoping to help her business grow. She will buy items like: bread, eggs, basic grains, larger amounts of soft-drinks (which are her best sellers). A grocery store is a very profitable business and she always makes good profits, as long as she is well stocked. She hopes, therefore, to be able to buy all the necessary merchandise that will allow her to increase her sales. Carlota has always dreamt of providing for her children a better life than the one she had; sufficient reason to work very hard every day to improve her business.
