Karla Sugey, 34, operates a business selling general merchandise. She has operated the business for more than 10 years. She also owns a small corner store, a business that she started because she needed an income to support her 3 children, who are dearer to her than anything. She gets up very early because she works as a street vendor and has to take several bus trips to sell her products. Her goal is to improve her standard of living. She will use the loan that she is applying for to buy sheets, blankets, clothing, footwear and cosmetics.
