Florinda sells her products in the market every day, from 8.30am to 12.30pm, Monday to Sunday. The locals know her and buy the beans that she sells either by the pound or in larger quantities. As beans are eaten every day, she constantly makes a good number of sales. Florinda is requesting this new loan to buy beans wholesale. She gets a discount when she buys in bulk and this allows her to offer her customers good prices and make a fair profit. Florinda feels very happy with the support she is receiving with these loans and shows her gratitude by making her repayments on time. She is an entrepreneurial woman who would like to provide her daughters with an education and ensure they become professionals.
