Maritza del Socorro is 67 years old. This is not her first experience dealing with loans. She has been selling food and other items for more than nine years.

Maritza will use her loan to buy beans, rice, oil, chicken, and sodas since the prices of these items are very inexpensive. What she wants most is to improve her business every day and keep it active.

Maritza del Socorro tiene 67 años, por lo que no es la primera experiencia que ha tenido con financiamientos. La actividad económica de Maritza es la venta de comida y otros. Hace más de 9 años que se dedica a este negocio. El negocio inicio con recursos propios, pues para ella ha sido muy difícil, pues la experiencia que ha tenido hasta los momentos con su negocio ha sido muy gratificante para mejorar su condición la de su familia. Así lograra realizar las compras de frijoles, arroz, aceite, pollo y gaseosas ya que el precio de estos productos está muy caro. Por lo que más desea es mejorar cada día en su negocio y mantenerlo activo.
