Blanca Rosa
Ms. Blanca is 27 years old, married, and has a 3-month old son. Together with her husband, she has a business converting vehicles from the use of gasoline to the use of natural gas. Many drivers are getting this conversion to reduce their expenses, because natural gas is less expensive than gasoline. This loan is Blanca's first within this lending institution. Her reason for applying for this loan is the need to improve her workshop and better satisfy her clients. She will use the loan money to buy supplies and tools needed for converting vehicles from using gasoline to using natural gas. Through this, she will build capital. Blanca is facing challenges with her business, such as increasing her clientele and being able to use her profits to improve her family's quality of life. The workshop is the only income-generating activity that she and her spouse have. Because of this, she feels happy and grateful with the institution for the support they have shown her, allowing her to grow her business.
