She has had this store for 10 years and with this business she fiinished raising her children and giving them the education she was unable to receive. She asked for a loan to buy dry grains, lemonades, eggs, juices, canned goods, detergents, soaps, oil, sweets, cookies and bread, as these are some of the products that she sells and her customers ask for. She also wants to have a bigger variety so that her customers can find what they need and feel at home.
