Gaudy Hazel
Gaudy Hazel is 27 years old and is married. She has a small grocery store in her house, which is very well stocked. She has had this business for 4 years; she started out with only a few items, such as snacks, fruit, etc. Over time she was investing in the business, and this made it grow little by little until it became a well-stocked grocery store. She requests this loan because she wants to make a substantial investment in her business before the 30th of May, when she hopes that the sale of all items will increase because of Mother's Day. Her dream is to continue to make her business grow, and if possible, to become a distributor in the market.
