Imelda Pastora
The businesswoman Mrs. Imelda Pastora Alarcón is 50-years-old, married and has 3 daughters. Her eldest daughter is 26-years-old and self-employed. Her 23-year-old daughter is in her fourth year of her studies and her youngest daughter who is 20-years old is in her third year of studies. Her husband works as a construction worker.


Her intentions are to generate sufficient income in order to continue maintaining her business, which is now her primary source of income. Her hopes are that her daughters will have a secure future in which they can overcome whatever situation they are presented with. She also wishes to have good health in order to see the success of her daughters in their careers. Additionally she wishes to leave them with housing where they can live with dignity.


Mrs. Pastora Alarcón runs a bookstore where she offers products such as: notebooks, pencils, erasers, pens and cards. Her business is located in Telica and she has run the business for 10 years. She began her business in order to have another source of income, which helped her and her daughters to have a better life and security. When she began her business it was with her own small amount of capital that she invested in small things such as rulers, bags and markers but with only these things she could not satisfy the demand of her customers. Recently she has decided that a loan would help her to make all of the necessary purchases of school supplies for the peak time in sales and take advantage of the need for her products.
