This isn’t the first loan Mercedes, 55, has requested; she’s been a client of the Fundación for a long time.

Her activity is meat sales since she’s always seeking ways to improve her and her family’s quality of life. Customers come by daily to buy a large variety of meat. She stocks sirloin, brisket, liver, round steak and other meat products and this is why she’s asking for a loan to buy a large variety of meats.
