She started with a small amount of cash from her husband, who has been working for 22 years for a flooring company in the city. Currently with a well established clientele, and thanks to good treatment and customer service, she has been able to continue selling many different products. She is asking for a loan to buy merchandise such as oils, noodles, flour, vegetables, fruit, etc, to be able to give her clients more variety.
