Señora Francisca makes a living by selling groceries (flour, noodles, bread, soft drinks, beer, sweets, detergent, etc.). She started her store when she was very young, and now that it is better stocked, she is requesting a loan to buy another display case and to fill it with merchandise to sell. She has 3 children, which is why she is at home every day and why she had the idea to start a kiosk. She is a very enterprising woman. She previously sold used clothing in the Los Lotes markets. It didn't go very well, but she didn't lose hope, and now she is the owner of her own business. She is very thankful to the organization for the support they have given her.
