Mardi De La Concepción is 56 years old and a woman who enjoys working. Her business is a grocery store that she has owned for more than six years. She started out selling just a few products.

The loan that Mardi is currently requesting will be used to buy basic grains, candies, soft drinks, bread, detergents, matches and soups. Mardi would like to improve her roof because during the rainy seasons she experiences problems in her home.
