Aurelia's story

Aurelia is separated and lives with her nephew. She says that she has worked approximately 20 years in sales. In the beginning, she used to sell only wood charcoal. Later on she started selling more products such as beverages. Nowadays, she has a grocery store and butcher’s shop, and her business is one of the main ones in the area.

She’s a hardworking woman who makes an effort to generate incomes in order to support her family. She’s requesting a loan to buy different products to sell such as vegetables, fruits, baked goods, meats and other products.
