A loan helped to buy groceries to sell.

Blanca Lidia's story

Blanca is requesting a new loan to reinvest in her business selling fruits and vegetables. She will use the borrowed funds to buy seasonal fruits, vegetables, sausages, fish, and meat. This way, she can have a bigger inventory of fruits, vegetables, and other products to offer to her customers.

With the support of her previous loan, Blanca was able to expand her business. She has gained new customers, and her selling area has grown as well as her sales. Her nuclear family has not changed, nor has she been presented with any types of problems.
