Doris Tatiana
Doris Tatiana is 35 years old and a single mother with 3 children, all in her care. She operates a small general store from her home, in which she sells basic grains and other articles. She began this business some 5 years ago because her mother needed additional income to take the place of scarce work. Soon, Doris began to administer the store and, now, it belongs to her. Doris runs it and invests in order to maintain it.

Her loan will be invested in buying, principally, basic grains, snacks, natural drinks and bread. Doris' dream is to be able to install a distribution center in the municipality where she lives, since at present there is none.
