Maria Magdalena
Doña María C. has a small grocery store that she operates out of her home under the name "GINA" Grocery.

Most of her sales are made on a credit basis since nearly all of her customers are factory workers who pay her at the end of the month.

Mrs. Maria C. is married and has a son. Her husband is a farmer (corn and beans). They live in an area that is very good for growing basic grains.

At this moment Doña Maria does not have enough working capital to stock her business well and satisfy customer demand. She plans to use the credit to buy goods wholesale so she can increase her inventory and generate more income.
