In her activity area there are three groups of partners, this specific group is very united and therefore more competitive as they cover a larger group of clients. The present application for a loan will be used to expand the variety of products offered at her grocery store which keeps in stock different kinds of merchandise at different prices and quality. Doña Gualberta’s credit history is very good as few late payments have been reported.
