Adriana is 36 years years old and her husband Santiago is 35 - they've been married for 13 years. The couple has two children, 11 and 9 years old, respectively. The children are both still in elementary school.

Adriana runs a well-stocked grocery store, while her husband works as a policeman.

She says she started her business with great sacrifice because they had little money. Besides, when she started the business, her second child was born, and her husband's income did not cover the household expenses.

Now she can state with satisfaction that her business is going very well. She has good sales and has formed a good clientele.

Their short term goal is to complete a building (which is already in construction), for the purpose of expanding her grocery store.

Now, she is seeking credit for the purchase of goods such as rice, oil, sugar, flour, etc.

Adriana tiene 36 años y está casada hace 13 años con Santiago que tiene 35 años de edad. El matrimonio tiene dos hijos de 11 y 9 años respectivamente. Ambos aún van a la escuela primaria.

Adriana posee una despensa bien surtida, mientras que su esposo es policía.

Ella comenta que inició su negocio con mucho sacrificio debido a que contaba con poco dinero para iniciar tal actividad. Además en ese tiempo nació su segundo hijo y los ingresos de su marido no cubrían los gastos del hogar.

Ahora cuenta con satisfacción que su negocio marcha muy bien, tiene buena venta y ya ha formado buena clientela.

Su proyecto a corto plazo es el de terminar una construcción que ya ha iniciado y que será destinado a la ampliación de su despensa.

En esta oportunidad solicita el crédito para la compra de mercaderías como arroz, aceite, azúcar, harina, etc.
