Dolores De Los Angeles's story

With hard work, tenacity and dedication, Dolores has managed to build a business selling cylinders of cooking gas.

Dolores, who lives in th Guasmo neighborhood, started the business with help from her former husband . She works all day, by herself, running the business which she set up in front of her house. She sells each cylinder of gas for $2.50 plus an empty cylinder which she keeps as collateral.

Dolores wants to keep the business going to help fund her retirement and that's why she's applying for this loan. One of her goals for the future is to own a wholesale business.
