Susana Del Carmen's story

Susana is requesting a new loan because she needs to invest more in her business to stock her stuffed tortilla shop with snacks such as cakes, yucca, sandwiches, and fried snacks. This will allow her to to purchase baskets, flour, cheese, chicharron, beans, cabbage, vinegar, oil, and other products.

Her last loan allowed her to maintain her stuffed tortilla shop and open a store with a variety of products. Her family circumstances have not changed.
