Mery's story

Mery is a 40-year-old woman. She is married, and has three children aged 4, 8, and 14. She sells groceries. She is loyal, honest, and thoughtful. She works in a southern area of the city, known for its high population density.

Mery has dark complexion, brown hair, and is short. Her mother tongue is Guaraní, which she speaks with her family. She also speaks Spanish. She shares her life with her husband, who is a taxi driver, and her children, who go to school. They rent a house made with bricks, and served with drinking water, electricity, and sewage. She sells products such as cooking oil, toilet paper, cleaning products, candies, beverages, and stationery products.

"My store covers my home expenses. I need to stock it regularly," she says. Her business is successful because she works many hours during the week. The advantage is that her business receives customers every day. The disadvantage is the lack of assorted products.

Her dream is to expand her business and turn it into a mini market. She would like to buy groceries to stock her store and not lose sales. This is her first loan from the institution since she started her business five years ago.

This is why Mery is applying for a loan to buy groceries to stock her store.
