Blanca Nelly's story
Blanca is a person who has faced much adversity in her life, but despite that, she’s had the strength to get ahead. Blanca left her place of birth in search of a better way to live, and little by little she’s been improving her quality of life. With 53 years of age, Blanca is a single mother of 4 children and the head of the family who must provide her children with their basic needs, because their father doesn’t help her financially with the costs of maintenance. A short time ago, Blanca started a general store in the new house where she lives, and thanks to this, she’s been able to generate income for her household. Blanca has to make some renovations to her store, as well as, stock it with a bigger variety of products so that she can attract more customers. However, she doesn’t have enough capital to make these purchases or renovations. She hopes that a loan will allow her the possibility to buy the products she needs for her general store, like every day groceries, and to carry out the renovations to her store. Blanca dreams that her store attracts many customers and that it generates more income for her family. She also dreams that her children will have a good education and financial stability.
