Jahaira Alexandra
Jahaira has always loved business, and, therefore, opened a small shop with a few groceries over 5 years ago. Today, her well-stocked store is located in her neighborhood El Fortín. There were few stores when she opened, which allowed her to maintain a wide clientele on the basis of her hours and service. Since her husband is a farmer, her products are always fresh.

She manages her business with her children from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., when she closes the store. Her merchandise comprises basic commodities, so she sells mostly rice, sugar, canned goods, vegetables, cleaning supplies, and so on. She is requesting this loan to expand her stock to include other items. She hopes her business will be more profitable and also wants to help her husband prosper by expanding it.

A Jahaira siempre le gusto el comercio por lo que empezó con una tienda pequeña con algunos víveres hace más de 5 años. Hoy en día tiene una tienda muy surtida en El Fortín lugar donde ella vive, cuando inicio el negocio no había muchas tiendas por lo que mantiene una clientela bastante extensa tanto por su tiempo como por la atención, como su esposo es agricultor sus productos son frescos. El negocio lo maneja con sus hijos desde las 6 de la mañana hasta las 10 de la noche cuando cierra su local. Sus productos son de primera necesidad por lo que más vende es arroz, azúcar, enlatados, verduras, artículos de limpieza etc., el préstamo para el que está aplicando es para aumentar los productos que vende ya que algunos le falta. Espera a futuro que su negocio tenga mejores rendimientos ya que quiere hacer más amplio su negocio para poder ayudar a su esposo a salir adelante.
