Mercedes's story

Mercedes lives with her husband and two young daughters. She says that she occasionally receives economic support from relatives who live abroad. Mercedes owns a business selling snacks, which she runs from two in the afternoon until seven at night. She has enjoyed cooking since she was very young, and this has helped her develop her business, which she has been operating for a long time. She started it out of the necessity to cover her basic household expenses.

Mercedes is requesting this loan so that she can have the ingredients at hand that she needs to keep her business open at the market. She will buy oil, flour, vegetables, condiments, etc., so that she can prepare a larger variety of snacks that will attract new customers. She hopes that the loan will help her increase the sales and the profits from her business so that she can repay her debt.

Her plan is to remodel her kitchen so that she can have a larger, more hygienic work space to prepare her products. She also dreams of offering her family a more comfortable style of life.
