Irela Gaudalupe
47-year-old Irela is from León. She is married and has three adult children. She works as a trader and she has been the owner of a grocery store for more than 2 years.

She started in the field of commerce at a very young age with her own capital selling ice and soda water. Later on with the profits the business generated for her, she was able to launch her own grocery business with the support of her son who helps her.

Irela needs finance to buy rice, sugar, oil, chicken, soda water, cheese, nail polish and a display cabinet. She believes this loan will help her to buy all the products that she doesn't yet have in stock, with the objective of increasing sales to earn better profits.

Among her future plans is to buy a freezer and at the same time improve the infrastructure of the premises where she has her business to give better presentation and in this way attract more customers. One of her next goals is to repay the loan, and to later apply for another one in order to keep investing in her grocery store until she turns it into a corner shop.
