Mery is an enterprising woman whom in conjunction with her husband decided to sell CDs every Sunday in the commercial markets around their local area.

Mery’s ambition is to be able to establish a business site where she will be able to sell the products daily. In order for the business to continue growing and her merchandise stock to continue expanding, Mery is asking for a loan.
