Armanda is an enterprising woman. Ever since she married she saved the maximum she could in order to acquire a small plot of land where she could live comfortably. She was able to acquire it and build a house, and she began a business selling food upon seeing that there wasn’t a similar business in her area. In addition, she sells bread in the afternoon. These activities help them meet their family’s expenses. Nevertheless her wishes to grow as a businesswoman have not diminished. Armanda is asking for a loan, money that will help her expand her business and equip her location where she sells food, making it more welcoming for her customers.
