Vilma Maria
A long time ago, Vilma was known for selling the best food in the area. Every day people would come by to order lunch or dinner. As her revenue gradually increased, she decided that she didn’t want to lose it so she invested it in something better. Now, at the age of 48, she has her own store that she established six years ago. At the same time, she continues to sell food in order to support her children, who are between the ages of 17 and 32. Having only a primary school education, Vilma has always struggled to move forward even though she has financial assistance from her husband and the moral support of her daughters.

Vilma dreams of continuing to grow her business, but she needs to keep investing in it. For this reason, she needs a loan in order to buy basic staples such as rice, beans, sugar, and other products to increase her sales. This will enable her to have more variety in her store. Her plans include continuing to increase the types of products she offers so that her business becomes a full-fledged grocery store.
