Blanca Cecilia
Señora Blanca is 30 and has two children.
She has been a merchant for six years and owns her own store. She learned this business from her mother-in-law, who also has a small store. Before opening her store, Blanca did not have a source of income; due to the need to provide for her children, she started to sell basic goods. The results were good, and her business and income have grown. She buys everything that she needs for the store in the city market; in order to do so, she has to walk to the highway to catch the bus. Other products are delivered to her home.
Blanca is requesting this loan from Fundacion Campo for the purchase of two quintals of beans, five quintals of corn, three boxes of soap, detergent, oil, drinks, school supplies, and other varied merchandise. This way, she will stock her store and make sure that she has a bit of everything in order to satisfy customer demand and ensure that her customers don't go elsewhere to make their purchases.
By maintaining her store well-stocked, she will sell more and increase her income so that she can pay off her loan. She will be able to ensure that she can support her family and provide her children with an education so that they can become professionals.
