Mirtha started her business 15 years ago with her own capital and was able to support her children by means of this business since she separated from her husband. Her children are currently all adults no longer dependent on her. She has a grocery store and works from 6am until 10pm tending to customers. She has many hopes for her store and this is why she’s requesting a loan to buy rice, candy and soft-drinks. Her goal is to continue growing in her business.
