Crusita Mercedes
Crusita is a selfless, enterprising, and enthusiastic woman who is completely dedicated to her business, which she has seen grow and develop. She loves her business, as she works with her family. She is married and has a daughter who is already married, which is why she associates her time with her with work. Her business is selling clothing and she carries it out on foot and by order. She currently needs financing to cover her demand, as she has a business opportunity at a special event for her kind of business. This is why she went to Ceprodel to apply for a loan to buy robes, pants, and shoes, which will allow her to increase her sales and, consequently, her living conditions and quality of life.
