Sra. Alcira is separated from her husband. She has lived in the District of Villa Primero de Mayo for quite some time. Alcira has a 14-year-old daughter who is financially dependent on her.
Being a single mother, Alcira must work and strive each day so that her entire family can get ahead. She currently has a grocery store in her home that she gradually stocked with different products. Alcira still lacks a few items, so she is requesting a loan in order to buy merchandise for her store so that there will be more inventory. This will enable her to increase her sales so that she can cover her family's expenses and improve their quality of life.
