Vilma's efforts have allowed her to get ahead with her own business. She opened her shop in her father's gas station. She remembers that 13 years ago she decided to start her own business in order to make more money and she began by selling juices. Since then, Vilma has not tired. The reason for her hard work are her two small children who are 8 and one. Her goal is to achieve more success with sales of new products. What she sells the most is soda and candy consumed by drivers who have stopped to gas up. She recognizes that in order to attract customers, she has to offer variety. As a result, she wants to start selling lubricants and motor oil. For this reason she is requesting a loan that will be invested in the purchase of these items at wholesale. Please support Vilma in realizing her wish for the wellbeing of her family.
