Fausta Teofila
Mrs. Fausta is 40 years old, married and has one daughter. Upon seeing that the income that her husband provided as a taxi driver was not enough to cover their basic expenses, they decided to start a business which they called “Miscelánea Mary”(Mary's corner shop). This business has been in existence for 9 years. They sell groceries, sweets, refreshments, dairy products, paper products, fried food, ice cream and others. Fausta has developed a liking for the store and it has become more than a business but her life's project. It allows them to have a source of income while being their own boss. She likes to treat her customers kindly and to have everything that they might need. For this reason she is requesting a loan to be able to buy merchandise and stock her store.
