Maria De La Concepción is 64 years old and has one child in her care. This is not the first time that she has taken loans to improve the running of her business.
Maria's business is a small grocery store that she set up 11 years ago. She started out with very few products as she didn't have much working capital. She has gradually improved her business and is always looking for ways to improve it every day. She is requesting this loan to buy basic grain, candy, natural soft drinks, juice, bread and cookies. She dreams of increasing her working capital since she would like to always remain in her business.

Ella se dedica a una pulpería, inicio hace mas de 11 años con muy pocos productos, debido a que no poseía mucho capital de trabajo, por lo que poco a poco es que ha ido mejorando su actividad ya que siempre está buscando la forma de mejorar cada día más. El motivo del financiamiento es para la compra de granos básicos, golosinas, refrescos naturales, juegos, pan y galletas. Por lo que sueña con incrementar su capital de trabajo pues le gustaría mantener siempre esta actividad económica.
